BRAZIL PROGRAM: SUMMER OF THE GODS & MARIA BETHANIA
Sunday, August 24, 2014 @ 2:45PM
BRAZILIAN PROGRAM:
THE SUMMER OF THE GODS + MARIA BETHANIA: MUSIC OF PERFUME

The Summer of the Gods revolves around Lili, a six year old Afro-Brazilian who unites with her native religious ancestry on a summer visit to her family's rural village. Soon after arriving in Northeast Brazil, where Afro-Brazilian religious traditions still endure, Lili encounters Orishas. As these African deities help her cope with a gift that has previously vexed her, Lili's grandmother upholds Afro-Brazilian religious practices as a revered local priestess. To ensure these traditions carry on after her grandmother passes, the gifted Lili is led on a mystic and supernatural adventure of initiation. (Brazil/USA, 2014, 20 min, Eliciana Nascimento, dir., Drama)

Music is Perfume brings to the widescreen the formidable 40 year career of Brazilian singing star, Maria Bethânia. Featuring her concerts and her famous brother, composer/singer Caetano Veloso, and Bethania's musical contemporaries, the film enters the intimate sphere of Bethania's creative process and illustrates her discography's reflection of Brazilian music history. Branding the singer a muse of Brazilian counter-culture and a queen of romantic ballads, the works of Maria Bethania are closely chronicled in relation to Brazil's societal development during the performer's prominence. (Brazil/France 2005, 77 min, Georges Gachot, dir., Documentary)
