Episode 475: Black God, White Devil (1964)

Guest Co-Hosts: Chris Stachiw, Ken Stanley

Cinema Novo month continues with a look at Glauber Rocha's Black God, White Devil (1964) (and its follow-up, Antonio Das Mortes from 1969). It's two stories in one as our main character, Manuel, kills his boss and then goes on the run, becoming a follower of Sebastian (the Black God of the title) before eventually becoming a follower of Corisco (the White Devil).

Ken Stanley and Chris Stachiw join Mike to discuss Rocha's work before and after the political coup that changed Brazilian history.

  1. Great episode. Love both these films, so was great to hear you talk about them. I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds them strange but mesmerizing.
