This moving account of the palafitas, the last of the notorious water slums in the
Bay of All Saints in Bahia, Brazil, illuminates the struggle between a government
aggressively trying to reclaim the bay in the name of ecological restoration and
the hundreds of families forced to evacuate in the process. Filmed among the
vast network of shacks built on stilts above a rising tide of garbage and
scheduled for demolition, Bay of All Saints turns the plight of one community into
a provocative contemplation on poverty, environmental justice, and the notion of
home.

TROPICÁLIA
Marcelo Machado 2012 | 87 mins | Brazil

In the late 1960s, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Os Mutantes, and Tom Zé were creating the soundtrack to the artistic movement that sent shockwaves through Brazilian culture. Combining recently recovered archival material and encounters with these musicians and other icons of the movement, Tropicália shines a contemporary light on this vital moment in the history of the country—and of
popular music around the world. A rare and thrilling document of the brilliant sparks that fly when art, culture, and politics collide.

This screening will be followed by the 2012 Margaret Mead Filmmaker Award
 Ceremony and a Brazilian Dance party with Maracutu NY and Nation Beat in
 the Wallach Orientation Center.
