Documentary by Eryk Rocha/Brazil/2017/90mins.

Winner of the Best Documentary Award at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, this intricately edited film combines film clips from the major works of the Brazilian Cinema Novo movement and period interviews with its leading filmmakers. The most prominent movement in Latin American film history in the past century, Cinema Novo was born in Brazil during the 1960s and 1970s. Auteur filmmakers including Nelson Pereira dos Santos, Carlos Diegues, Ruy Guerra, Leon Hirszman, Walter Lima Jr., Joaquim Pedro de Andrade, Paulo César Saraceni, Jorge Bodanzky and Orlando Senna, and Glauber Rocha (father of Cinema Novo director Eryk, as well as of singer Ava Rocha, whose music is featured in the film). The filmmakers pushed boundaries with aesthetically bold films that used non-professional actors and low-budget production techniques to confront social inequality. Films including Black God, White Devil; Ganga Zumba; Barren Lives; and Iracema.

WINNER: Golden Eye - Best Documentary, Cannes Film Festival

Cinema Novo is a film manifesto about the relevance today of almost forgotten Brazilian film movement of the sixties cinema novo. It is a daring impressionistic essay of a new genre showing us that cinema today could be at once political and sensual, poetical and engaged, formal and narrative, fictional and non-fictional - an interpretation of a mundo novo - of a new world.”-Golden Eye Jury
