In Person: Rubens Machado Jr.
Alongside the development of marginal, underground, new, and poetic cinemas, and the success of state-sponsored Embrafilme, the proliferation of experimental film production in authoritarian Brazil (1964–86) was unprecedented. Often marginalized, censored, or ignored, experimental Super-8 shorts circulated by way of festivals, art shows, and a myriad of below the radar events. Using Agrippina é Roma-Manhattan (1972), the unfinished short by Hélio Oiticica, as a point of departure, this program presents a brief overview of experimental Brazilian Super-8 film in all its aesthetic diversity.
This program is part of the Los Angeles Filmforum film series: Ism Ism Ism: Experimental Cinema in Latin America, Los Angeles Filmforum’s contribution to the Getty-led Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative.
