*The Brazil Studies Program at Harvard's David Rockefeller Center for 
Latin American Studies presents*


Brazilian Film Series

*Saudade Do Futuro* (2006)
Directed by Cesar Paes

This award-winning documentary tells the story of the cantadores, folk 
singers from the more underprivileged northeastern regions of Brazil, 
who land in the metropolis of São Paulo in search of better lives, fame 
and fortune. As the group performs, we learn about their everyday lives 
and struggles, including everything from their financial status to 
religious beliefs and personal relationships. The rhythm of one of the 
largest cities in the world, featuring the unique sounds of forró and 
repentismo, is brought to life through their stories and songs.

*Tuesday, April 20*
6:00-8:00pm
TSAI Auditorium, 1730 Cambridge Street
