The third edition of the festival of Brazilian film features eight recent movies from the South American country.

The focus this year at the Festival du Film Bresilien is on documentaries with films such as o Relogio de Meu Avo (grandpa’s watch) featuring interviews with survivors of the holocaust, Tropicalia about the revolutionary arts movement of the 1960s and a Batalha do Passinho about dance funk contests in Rio’s poor neighbourhoods.
Feature films include Colegas, a moving comic road trip about three down syndrome friends searching for their dreams (photo), Heleno, a biopic of tragic football star of the 1940s Heleno de Freitas, and Corda Bamba, a family drama about a ten-year old girl tightrope walker who has to leave the circus to live with her grandmother.
“The festival was born of an idea to challenge the preconceptions people abroad have of a Brazil that celebrates only football and samba,” says festival director Pieca Levy, who heads up a team of volunteers. “We want to highlight different aspects of Brazilian culture.”
