Tropicália (12)

Wednesday 14th February 2018 - 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm, Palmer Building

Emerging in the late 1960s, Tropicália was an encompassing movement which involved music, visual arts, theatre, literature and cinema, and stood for a Brazilian art that mixed national specificities with foreign pop culture. By interviewing some of its key figures, like Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, and playfully exploring a huge amount of old materials, Marcelo Machado’s documentary presents the aesthetic and political challenges of a major moment in Brazilian culture.
