Filtered news: Brazilian film festival in London

Time flies by. It's been ten years now since Brazilian cinema underwent a Phoenix-like renaissance in the mid-1990s, after a period of absolute inertia in the late 1980s/early 1990s, and became one of the most coveted national cinemas in the world, with Walter Salles leading the parade with his international successes. To celebrate a decade of what has became known Novo Cinema Novo, New Brasil is organising a festival at the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane between 14 and 18 September which includes some of the main films produced in the period and a workshop with Brazil's leading film theoretician, Lucia Nagib. Not to be missed.
