Brazil in Newark 2017 Film Series
Guerra de Canudos (Battle of Canudos)
This epic film from 1997 tells the true story of how the Brazilian army crushed a peasant rebellion in 1897 in the arid heartland of Bahia in northeastern Brazil. More than 15,000 people died in the bloodiest civil war ever fought in Brazil. Directed by Sergio Rezende, and starring José Wilker, Cláudia Abreu, and Paulo Betti, Guerra de Canudos vividly illustrates how one community rebelled against a government that brought oppression and poverty.
Following the screening, enjoy a pocket show with questions and answers from artists and producers. Screening: 170 min. In Portuguese with English subtitles. Pocket Show: 30 min.
