The Museum of Modern Art announced today the return of Premiere Brazil!, an annual survey of Brazilian cinema running July 14-27, 2011, in The Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters.

A collaboration between MoMA and the Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival, Premiere Brazil! introduces New York audiences to original and accomplished work by both new and established Brazilian filmmakers. 14 films will be presented in this year's showcase, including four international premieres and a retrospective of the work of artist and filmmaker Cao Guimarães.

Now in its ninth edition, the festival shines a light on the strength and vivacity of recent Brazilian film productions with several promising debuts. The festival opens on July 14 with Riscado (Craft) (2010), Gustavo Pizzi’s fictional portrait of the ups and downs of a talented, creative personality; Pizzi will be in attendance to introduce the film and participate in a post-screening discussion.

Also featured is João Jardim’s Amor? (2010), authentic interviews about love between couples gone terribly wrong, re-enacted verbatim by actors and actresses; and Noitada de samba foco de resistência (Samba’s Evening) (2010), Cély Leal’s narrative of Teatro Opinião, a samba club in Rio de Janeiro that became a symbol of political and cultural resistance in the early 1970s.
