Retrospective on Joaquim Pedro de Andrade in Philadelphia

International House Philadelphia (IHP) will present a major retrospective on Brazilian filmmaker Joaquim Pedro de Andrade, one of the most important figures in the Cinema Novo movement that took place in Brazil during the 1960’s and 1970’s. Like those of his fellow Cinema Novo filmmakers, such as Glauber Rocha and Nelson Pereira dos Santos,  Andrade’s films are socially and politically engaged, while opposing traditional Brazilian cinema, which consisted primarily of musicals, comedies and Hollywood style epics.

Besides Macunaíma (1969), considered a masterpiece, Andrade’s career encompassed four additional features, numerous short films and the documentary on Garrincha. The retrospective seeks to pay tribute to Andrade’s complete body of work. It runs from May 12 until May 25. Schedule below:

May 12 @ 6:00 PM – Garrincha: Hero of the Jungle

May 12 @ 8:00 PM – Macunaíma

May 17 @ 7:00 PM –The Priest and the Girl

May 18 @7:00 PM – The Conspirators

May 19 @ 8:00 PM – Conjugal Warfare

May 25 @ 7:00 PM – Brazilwood Man
