MAY 2015 at the SALON

presented by Tara Goe from the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

Tropocalia (2012), 87 minutes, Directed by Marcelo Machado
Tropicália, or Tropicalism, is one of Brazil s most significant cultural movements. Born in the late 1960s by a collective of like-minded souls, it used music and visual arts as a voice to confront the cultural and political establishment.

This documentary explores Brazil’s history during this time period with material lovingly gleaned from the archives, and the testimony of the group’s protagonists including Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Tom Zé, and the band Os Mutantes--whose controversial thoughts, music and behavior resulted in prison and exile for its leaders.

This is the second in an occasional series of visits from the Music, Film & Audio Department at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, where Tara Goe is a librarian. She will have a few theme-related items (DVDs, CDs, & books) available for check out with a Carnegie Library card. Don't have a card? You can ask Tara about signing up for one after the screening!
