The film: Cinema, Aspirins and Vultures, by Marcelo Gomes (2006).

Set in the outback of arid Pernambuco, this highly acclaimed Brazilian road movie tells the story of two young men, one escaping war, the other poverty, who embark on a road trip in 1942 setting up moving picture-shows in order to sell aspirin, a recently invented wonder drug. This is a film about a moment in time and a place in Brazil. It is about today. It is about a time in our lives and a place in our souls, about compassion, war, peace, what we must give up, leave behind, in order to get to our destinations.

Watch a mix of trailer and interview with the director at utube: or check “information about the film )

The Art: Victor Holder was born in Venezuela and has lived in Australia for the last 10 years. He is a visual and graphic artist, with a particular interest in the concept of reconnection with ones spirit through his eclectic vision of life on Earth and divinity, integral parts of all cultures and human beings. He achieves this through the creation of visuals, animations and large painted art works

 The Music:

Nahuatl Sound System represents the anger and force that has emerged through the struggle of people not only from today but from yesterday and tomorrow in terms of a conscious sound revolution.

 Discotecadéliador might hail from the Brazilian capital, Brasília, but he prefers the politics of rhythm. Expect high-tech sounds from the Amazon; muddy beats from the dry Northeast of Brazil and drums from all tribes of the globe. Sexy stuff that you haven’t heard but will try to dance to. Favela or chic? It’ll take some sweat before you know…

 Guido Bambaataa(Dj Resident):  A show man himself! With his ”favela Pimp” style, bringing the latest in Brazilian music, Funk, Baile and Hip Hop…

 Manu da banda:  An itinerant musician wandering around the world, percussionist of afro and afro-latin rhythms, guitarist, singer and songwriter…. this is Manu and his band. This originally Chilean band is very influenced by the  afro-latin rhythms. Promises of a great live performance!!!!

 The Food: el Señor Barbecue, one of Melbourne’s finest BBQ caterers, with a passion for food and cooking. On offer: an Argentinean influenced menu, with BBQ Asado (ribs), sausages, chicken dishes, refreshments and salads.
