Black Orpheus
November 22nd at 2 and 6

LIGHT NIGHTS: A new series at the Downtown Independent that sheds light on socially conscious films from around the world.

As a follow-up to last month's beautiful screening of I AM CUBA, Light Nights will host a special 50th anniversary screening of the seminal Oscar-winning film BLACK ORPHEUS (Orfeo Negro).

Directed by Marcel Camus, BLACK ORPHEUS is a cinematic adaptation of the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. Set during Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro, Orpheus is a streetcar conductor and Eurydice a country girl who has just jilted her lover and is attempting to escape his wrath. From the moment of its first appearance, this bittersweet Afro-Brazilian romantic tragedy has charmed audiences the world over with its beauty, color and music. It played a major role in ushering the infectious bossa nova beat to the U.S. at the dawn of the modern civil rights movement.

Please do not miss the only screening in Los Angeles
to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of this remarkable film.
Experience the magic on the big screen, where it belongs.
