Cine Fest Brasil


Film screening of Zuzu Angel
Sunday, August 05, 2007

From 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Central Park SummerStage
The sounds and sights of Brazil will fill up this special concert and screening.

AfroReggae was formed in 1995 in the favela shanty-towns of Rio de Janeiro. Fusing many elements of Brazilian and international music past and present—including mangue beat, rap, samba-reggae, funk, raga, xaxado beats, drum ‘n’ bass, capoeira and candomblĂ©—the 13 member group has established itself as one of Brazil’s most passionate and creative bands. AfroReggae has collaborated with artists like Arnaldo Antunes, Nando Reis and Caetano Veloso, and opened for the Rolling Stones at a 2006 Copacabana Beach concert for a crowd of over 2 million people.

AfroReggae’s performance will precede a screening of director Sergio Resende’s 2006 film Zuzu Angel, which tells the true story of a famous Brazilian fashion designer of the ‘70s, and her political awakening after the military regime kills her son.
