Film Quarterly Webinar: The New Brazilian Cinema

Film Quarterly’s Winter 2020/2021 issue introduces a new generation of Brazilian filmmakers and scholars who have changed the landscape of Brazilian cinema over the past decade. Challenging the traditional Rio/São Paulo production axis, these voices from the periphery—Black and provincial and Indigenous, female, male, and trans—show the possibilities for a more inclusive Brazilian cinema. Co-editors João Luiz Vieira and FQ’s B. Ruby Rich moderate a discussion with dossier contributors Fábio Andrade, Natalia Brizuela, Marcelo Ikeda, Tatiana Monassa, and Janaína Oliveira.
