Black Orpheus

Brazil | 1959 | 100 min | PG


The idea of taking the myth of Orpheus and Eurydices and moving it to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro during Carnaval, must have seemed like a fever dream to the French director Marcel Camus. 1959’s Black Orpheus/Orfeu Negro with its dream-like urgency and propulsive samba fuelled soundtrack, went on to win the Palme d’Or and the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.

The story of the ill-fated lovers pulled bossa-nova and samba onto the world stage with the great composer Antonio Carlos Jobim and at the time, a lesser known Luiz Bonfá, adding their trademark sounds to the lush cinematic landscape. – GARVIA BAILEY
