Brazil Initiative Spring 2017 Film Series - Serras da desordem (The Hills of Disorder, 2006)

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

7:00pm – 9:00pm

Juokowsky Forum

Opening reception and Q&A from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Watson Institue lobby. 

The Brazil Initiative's Spring Film Series presents a selection of classic and contemporary films straight out of "another Brazil": the vast and rich world of the country's backlands. 

This dizzying blend of documentary and recreation – described as a cinematic "UFO" in recent Brazilian production – plunges viewers into the story of Carapiru, a Native man who wandered through the Brazilian hinterland for a decade after the slaughter of his tribe, the Awá-Guajá.
