FREE. Wednesday, Aug 19th. 8pm. In the 1940s, deep into the outback of Brazil, ranch hand Manuel murders his boss after a wage dispute. From there he is tossed into a mad world of cult leaders, revolutionaries and bandits, as he shifts allegiances from one outlaw to the next, seeking redemption and justice, but finding himself mired deeper into criminality and an unending sequence of massacre. Close on his trail is the famous mercenary assassin, Antonio Das Mortes. Blending mysticism, pop culture, western genre, and gritty realism, BLACK GOD WHITE DEVIL established the 25 year old director Glauber Rocha as not only a leader of the Cinema Novo, but as one of the greatest influences on the radicalization of cinema in the 60s. An enormous influence on Godard, Jodoroswky, Jancso and many more, this is a rarely screened watershed piece of film art!
