CIMMFest 2010: Tom Ze: Astronauta Libertado
Tom Ze: Astronauta Libertado
Directed by Igor Iglesias Gonzlez
Spain/Brazil, 2009, 90 min.
North American premiere!
Peek into the mind of Brazilian musician Tom Ze, one of the past century's most innovative avant-garde pop composers. Blending interviews and footage of past and current performances, Igor Iglesias Gonzlez's documentary details Ze's roots in the tropicalismo movement and subsequent fall into obscurity before his revival through the help of David Byrne. An otherworldly mix of South American folk tradition and futuristic pop beats, Tom Ze is a visual and aural sensation.
Also playing: "Fragile" (short doc, Andrea Lodovichetti)
