Rio, 100 Degrees F.
Rio, 100 Degrees F. |
A Tribute to Nelson Pereira dos Santos
“As important to Latin American cinema as [Jean-Luc Godardęs] Breathless is to European film.”—Toronto International Film Festival
With his wildly influential debut, dos Santos brought to Brazil an unprecedented neo-realist look at class, race, and poverty—and dramatically launched his career as a revolutionary director when his film was abruptly suppressed by the Brazilian government. Rio, 100 Degrees F. follows a day in the lives of young, black peanut vendors as they move through Rio’s cityscape and social strata, from their homes in the favelas (portrayed honestly for the first time) to the city’s most affluent and tourist-filled neighborhoods. (100 mins., 35mm)
