Plot Sypnosis:

Joaquim Pedro de Andrade was one of the most important figures in the Cinema Novo movement that transformed Brazilian cinema in the 1960s and ‘70s. Kino Classics is proud to present his complete films on Blu-ray, restored in 2K. Hailing from a culturally prominent family in Rio de Janeiro, Andrade grew up in close contact with some of the country’s greatest artists, writers, and scholars. Abandoning his university education to pursue filmmaking, he would soon find himself at the heart of the proliferation of formally and politically audacious filmmaking that comprised Cinema Novo. Like those of his fellow Cinema Novo-associated filmmakers, such as Glauber Rocha and Nelson Pereira dos Santos, Andrade’s films combined a sophisticated, modernist formal approach with an uncompromisingly political, often outrageous, and uniquely Brazilian sensibility that makes his work every bit as vital today as it was in the 1960s and ‘70s.
