The 19th edition of Paris' Brazilian Film Festival will happen from June 20th to June 27th at the Arlequin theater. This year the festival celebrates Tropicalismo's 50th anniversary.
The movie "Elis" will open the festival. Directed by Hugo Prata, the movie portrays the life and work of Elis Regina, one of the quintessential Brazilian singers.
The festival also invites the public to watch music themed documentaries such as "Tropicália", by Marcelo Machado, and "Rogério Duarte, the Tropikaolista", by José Walter Lima. In addition, there is a selection of movies dedicated to younger audiences.
The movie "Chico, a Brazilian artist" closes the festival with another great Brazilian music name. The movie celebrates Chico Buarque and its creative process, with an approach that was possible through the director's friendship with the musician.
