BLACK ORPHEUS
Directed by Marcel Camus, 1959, PG, 1h47, France-Brazil-Italy
With Breno Mello, Marpessa Dawn, Lourdes de Oliveira
Music by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luiz Bonfá

Young lovers Orfeu and Eurydice run through the favelas of Rio de Janeiro during Carnival, on the run from a hitman dressed like Death and Orfeu's vengeful fiancée Mira. Winner of both the Academy Award for best foreign-language film and the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or, this retelling of the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice kicked off the bossa nova craze that sent hi-fis across America spinning.

Presented in partnership with Brasil SummerFest, Cinema Tropical, and Summer on the Hudson.
