São Paulo and its street poets.
To the rhythm and rhymes of musical improvised poetry, journalist or simple maid, art-gallery director or cab driver, the immigrants from the Northeast tell us the beat of the megalopolis.
A fan’s review :
This is a very beautiful poetic film about the largest city in South America, Sao Paulo told from the perspective of its largest migrant population the Nordestinos. Filled with startling music (forro, repente, embolada) and a cast of warm and humorous characters - it is a Latcho Drom like journey into a mostly ignored side of Brasilian culture. Tremendously photographed and edited a total must have for lovers of all Brasilian, and indeed documentary.
Just watched it and I have a very big smile on my face.
