Cinematic Archives Reading Group

CINEMATIC ARCHIVES Reading Group
In preparation of the launching of the book Documentary Filmmaking in Contemporary Brazil. Cinematic Archives of the Present (2019) by Gustavo Furtado (Oxford University Press) the NCLAFF, The Chelsea Theatre, The Duke Brazil Initiative, and Screen Society invite to a fun and intellectually stimulating reading group!!!

*The first 5 people to sign up will get a copy of the book the day of the launching!!! Another 5 books will be giving away the day of the launching.

Participants of the CINEMATIC ARCHIVES Reading Group will meditate and converse on the selected chapters of the book that help us to think through some of the most avant-garde films during the consolidation (or not) of the Brazilian democracy after 1985. Brazil's highly unequal society, witnessed in this period the rise of film and documentary production to unprecedented vitality in quantity, quality, and diversity.

A limited number of copies of each text are available in advance by RSVP to:
mlr34@duke.edu (Subject CINEMATIC ARCHIVES) | sing until October 4.
