Samba Cine Club & Brazil Film Festival

We are happy to share good news….

For the first time ever, Melbourne will be hosting its FIRST BRAZIL FILM FESTIVAL, which will take place between 27th and 30th of October 2010.

The festival will open on Wednesday 27th October with the recently nominated candidate for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2011 Academy Awards: “Lula the Son of Brazil”.

The timing of the nomination raised some eyebrows in Brazil. It came during times of presidential election in which Lula is barred by Brazil’s constitution from running for a third consecutive term, but is playing a leading role.

Lula, 64, enjoys a 75 percent approval rating in Brazil where he has melded his inspiring biography with market-friendly policies and social welfare programs. Since he took office in 2003, more than 20 million Brazilians have been lifted out of poverty and Brazil has become one of the world’s fastest-growing emerging economies.

The Festival continues with “Love Stories Only Last 90 Minutes” by accomplished screenwriter Paulo Halm’s (The Battle of Canudos, Two Lost on a Dirty Night) debut feature is an unpretentious sexy comedy about thirtysomethings in bohemian Rio on Thursday 28th.

On Friday we embark on a beautiful journey through the heart of South America. Recipient of multiple awards and directed by Glauber Rocha’s son, Eryk Rocha, “Pachamama” tells the story of the director’s journey through the Brazilian Amazon rainforest on his way to Peru and Bolivia, where he encounters the reality of people historically cut-off from the political process of their own country and that, for the first time, are attempting to have a say in the outcome of their own fate.

And for the closing party on Saturday…..

Samba Cine Club will join Brazil Film Festival for a very exclusive closing night screening and party: “DZI Cabaret”- a taste of a special Brazilian Cabaret Party from the 70’s! Starring the irreverent memorable “Dzi Croquettes”
