Join us June 19th at 7:00 PM for a sizzling night of sights and sounds as The Point of View Film Series screens "Black Orpheus" (1959).
Winner of both the Academy Award for best foreign-language film and the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or, Marcel Camus’ Black Orpheus (Orfeu Negro) brings the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice to the twentieth-century madness of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. With its eye-popping photography and ravishing, epochal soundtrack, Black Orpheus was an international cultural event, and it kicked off the bossa nova craze that set hi-fis across America spinning–The Criterion Collection.
The Point of View Film Series meets monthly in the Skyline Room of Tapp’s Arts Center to view and discuss films of varying styles and genres from around the world.
Our couch seating is limited; please feel free to bring your own pillows, cushions, or chairs.
