Dacio Malta | Brazil | 2016 | Documentary | 2016 | 87min
AMC LOEWS 34th St., April 15 @ 2:45PM

The night-club Gato Tuerto is surely the most symbolic Cuban cabaret. For 55 years, it has been the refuge of the so-called intellectual bohemia in Havana. Cuba’s most important musicians have been on it’s little stage, such as Omara Portuondo, Pablo Milanés, César Portillo de La Luz, Meme Solis, Elena Burke, Juana Bacallao and Chucho Valdés, among others, and has been the stage for the world’s largest bolero, being registered in record book Guiness. The documentary tells the story of this cabaret, it’s founders, artists and clients, such as Gabriel Garcia Marques, Caetano Veloso and Julio Cortázar. The café-concert is actually a backdrop to recover the history of Havana’s cultural and night life in over five decades – with all its good and bad times.

Tom Zé is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer who was influential in the Tropicália movement of 1960s Brazil.

"Kaiser: The Greatest Footballer
Never to Play Football", by Louis
Tribeca Film Festival

In Brazil in the ’80s, soccer superstars had it all: the adoration of millions of fans, the frenzied attention of the world's sports media, and all the glamor Rio de Janeiro's nightclubs had to offer. But among the ranks of the country's elite athletes, one of the biggest sports celebrities of his generation harbored a secret: He had never played a single game.

The Metropolis in Latin America, 1830–1930

On view: March 22–June 30, 2018

Over the course of a century, rapid urban growth, sociopolitical upheavals, and cultural transitions reshaped the architectural landscapes of major cities in Latin America. Focusing on six capitals—Buenos Aires, Havana, Lima, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, and Santiago de Chile—The Metropolis in Latin America1830–1930, presents the colonial city as a terrain shaped by Iberian urban regulations, and the republican city as an arena of negotiation of previously imposed and newly imported models, which were later challenged by waves of indigenous revivals. Photographs, prints, plans, and maps depict the urban impact of key societal and economic transformations, including the emergence of a bourgeois elite, and extensive infrastructure projects, rapid industrialization, and commercialization.

Being: New Photography 2018

Through August 19

The Museum of Modern Art
Every two years, MoMA’s celebrated New Photography exhibition series presents urgent and compelling ideas in recent photography and photo-based art. This year’s edition, Being, asks how photography can capture what it means to be human.
At a time when questions about the rights, responsibilities, and dangers inherent in being represented—and in representing others—are being debated around the world, the works featured in Being call attention to assumptions about how individuals are depicted and perceived. Many challenge the conventions of photographic portraiture, or use tactics such as masking, cropping, or fragmenting to disorient the viewer. In others, snapshots or found images are taken from their original context and placed in a new one to reveal hidden stories. While some of the works might be considered straightforward representations of individuals, others do not include images of the human body at all. Together, they explore how personhood is expressed today, and offer timely perspectives on issues of privacy and exposure; the formation of communities; and gender, heritage, and psychology.

Retrospective: Joaquim Pedro de Andrade
MAY 2018
International House Philadelphia

In collaboration with Kino Lorber, Lightbox presents a retrospective of the work of Joaquim Pedro de Andrade, one of the most important figures in the Cinema Novo movement that transformed Brazilian film in the 1960s and ’70s. Hailing from a culturally prominent family in Rio de Janeiro, Andrade grew up in close contact with some of the country’s greatest artists, writers, and scholars. Abandoning his university education to pursue filmmaking, he would soon join in the formally and politically audacious Cinema Novo. Andrade’s films combined a sophisticated, modernist approach with an uncompromisingly critical, often outrageous, and uniquely Brazilian sensibility that makes his work every bit as vital today as it was when he made it.
