Lusophone Film Festival Meets Ten Cities Screening Series, Apr. 26 2014 @ Goethe Institut

02 APRIL Poster Goethe LRG
Date: April 26, 2014
Venue: Goethe Institut
Time: 3-8.30 pm
Entry: Free

This session will be dedicated to the musical mix of the Portuguese-speaking countries, and is organised jointly with Ten Cities.

The films on show will be the following:

Lusophony, the (r)Evolution (Lusofonia, a (r)Evolução), Red Bull Music Academy – Portugal, 2006, 65 min
A Red Bull Music Academy production filmed with the fast-beat of a music video. From Portuguese fado, Angolan kuduro, Cape Verdean morna, Brazilian baile funk, hiphop or rock, this film sheds light on a new movement being born out of the cultural mix of the Portuguese-speaking countries

Passinho Dance Off (A Batalha do Passinho), Emílio Domingos – Brazil, 2012, 73 min
The Passinho dance is the newest trend in Brazilians slums. A new way to dance baile funk but also a lifestyle, the Passinho fever is changing young boys’ life around Brazil’s outskirts. This documentary portrays this phenomena and discovers how the culture around the funk world has expanded beyond funk dance parties, DJs, and favelas.

I Love Kuduro, Mário Patrocínio – Angola, 2013, 95 min
Kuduro is an urban cultural movement born out of Angolan discos and raves in downtown Luanda through a mixture of house, techno and traditional Angolan rhythms. The movement is at once a style of music, dance, fashion and culture, explored in this documentary through the distinct performances of its greatest stars.

Off the Beaten Track, João Pedro Moreira – Portugal, 2013, 30 min
The beats of Angolan Kuduro started appearing in Lisbon clubs in the late 90s. Four musicians started mixing it with beats from all over the world, creating a unique sound called Progressive Kuduro and a band called Buraka Som Sistema that is taking world dancefloors by storm.
