Classic 1967 Braziliian film released on DVD!

This is the second film in cult Braziian director Glauber Rocha's brilliant trilogy, the first installment of which has also recently been reissued by Mr Bongo - Black God White Devil - and like that film, this is a classic example of the Brazilian Cinemo Novo movement - a kind of equivalant to the French Nouvelle Vague and bearing certain similarities to the Brazilian Tropicalia movement - in which young directors with a singular vision set out to challenge poiitical and artistic expectations by producing their own films, which often dealt with themes of poverty and politics.

This is a boldly confrontational political fable set in a fictional Latin American country in which the lead character, an idealistic anarchist writer, has to decide between supporting a corrupt and in-fighting political elite, or the will of the blindly submissive masses!

In common with many of Brazil's radical artists of the 1960s, director Glauber Rocha was eventually forced into exile in the 1970s as the military dictatorship took power.

Highly recommended!
