Premiere Brazil! Teases 2012 Lineup (Introducing Audiences To New Brazilian Cinema)

5 X favela

New Yorkers, get ready once again... another annual Premiere Brazil! installment at MoMA begins on July 12, and runs through the 24th. It's always a film enthusiast's treat, and recommended. I wish I could see more of the films each year, but there's never enough time in the day to do so.

This is the series' 10th edition by the way. And to celebrate, new works from filmmakers previously featured, like Eduardo Coutinho (Songs); Beto Brant (I’d Receive the Worst News from Your Beautiful Lips); and Selton Mello (The Clown).

Also featured will be talented newcomers include Kiko Goifman and Claudia Priscilla, who debut with Look at Me Again; and Vinicius Coimbra, with a Brazilian Western about redemption and revenge, titled Matraga.

On the short films side will be two films made by five young directors, about life in the favelas; the first titled 5 x Favela (photo above) - a collection of five fiction shorts about various aspects of favela-dwelling; and Peace in Rio, a documentary about the controversial social policing of the favelas.

All films are from Brazil and in Portuguese with English subtitles. Films are New York premieres, and initial screenings will be introduced by each filmmaker, which is great!

On Monday, July 16, a round-table discussion titled Film and Social Change: The Case of Rio’s Favelas, will take place, between artists, social commentators, and politicians.

The full official lineup should be revealed soon enough. consider this a teaser.

I'll also be profiling some of these titles here on S&A.
