AFS: O Homem do Pau-Brasil (Brazilwood Man)

AFS: O Homem do Pau-Brasil (Brazilwood Man)

Austin Film Society presents: O Homem do Pau-Brasil (Brazilwood Man), directed by Joaquim Pedro de Andrade

Thursday, June 28th, 2018, 7:30 PM
AFS Cinema
6406 N I-35 Suite 3100, Austin, TX 78752

Synopsis: De Andrade’s final film is sure to leave even the most well-versed student of Brazilian culture in the dark. Much like “Ulysses” however, it can be enjoyed and appreciated even without a full understanding of the satirical references or Portuguese language puns. Constructed around the ideas of poet and political theorist Oswald de Andrade (no relation), it is a series of collage-like fragments connected by a monologue of Oswald’s words, ending with words that may constitute a fittingly rude epitaph to Joaquim’s work, “Go fuck yourself, you shithead revolutionaries.”

AFS Cinema
6406 N I-35 Suite 3100, Austin, TX 78752

Synopsis: De Andrade takes aim at the Brazilian middle class by directing his camera at their bedrooms. This sex comedy is more than meets the eye. Modeled on the very popular pornochanchada trend of the time, de Andrade, as usual, is interested in the ways that attitudes about social class, race, and other factors are exposed in the arena of sex.
