Brazilian Cinema Colloquium at Harvard University


Friday, April 20, 2018, 2:00pm to 3:30pm


Barker Center, Room 114 (Kresge Foundation Room), 12 Quincy Street
"Brazil, 21st Century: A Turbulent Country on the Streets, but a Quiet One on the Screens"

Sérgio Rizzo, Brazilian film critic, professor, and curator;

Member of the selection committees of the São Paulo International Film Festival and the "It's All True" International Documentary Film Festival

Description: The Brazilian cinematographic production of fiction that reaches the commercial circuit cannot represent the social, political, and cultural complexities of the country. Documentaries, short films, and experimental films seek to explore diversity but still are seen by small niches of the public. This seminar, presented by the Brazilian film critic Sérgio Rizzo, will include two short films, each with English subtitles.

This event is free and open to the public. No registration required. Organizer: Aaron Litvin,
