Episide 476: Entranced Earth (1967)

Guest Co-Hosts: Chris Stachiw, Ken Stanley

Cinema Novo month continues with a look at Glauber Rocha's Entranced Earth (1967) also known as Land of Anguish. It’s the story of the mythical country of El Dorado where the events seem to oddly parallel the political upheaval of Brazil from 1960 to 1966. It was initially banned by the Brazilian government until enough public outcry allowed it to be shown domestically as well as in film festivals.

Ken Stanley and Chris Stachiw join Mike to discuss Rocha's film as well as the documentary Cinema Novo from Eryk Rocha.
