irreverence and recent gangster blockbusters, Brazilian cinema is
gaining prominence with critics, at global film festivals, and on
DVD shelves. This volume seeks to introduce newcomers to Brazilian
cinema and to offer valuable insights to those already well-versed
in the topic. It brings into sharp focus some of the most important
movements, genres, and themes from across the eras of Brazilian
cinema, from cinema novo to musical chanchada, the road movie to
cinema de bordas, avant-garde to pornochanchada. Delving deep
beyond the surface of cinema, the volume also addresses key themes
such as gender, indigenous and diasporic communities, and
Afro-Brazilian identity. Situating Brazilian cinema within the
country's changing position in the global capitalist system, the
essays consider uneven modernization, class division, dictatorship,
liberation struggles, and globalization alongside questions of
entertainment and of artistic innovation.
