Episode 478: The Lion Has Seven Heads (1970)

Guest Co-Hosts: Chris Stachiw, Heather Drain

We conclude Cinema Novo month with a look at Glauber Rocha's The Lion Has Seven Heads (1970) though, this movie seems to be post-Cinema Novo and wasn’t even made in Brazil. Instead, this film was made after Rocha was exiled from Brazil and shot in Brazzaville in the Democratic Republic of Congo along with help from French and Italian producers. If there's one thing I know less about South American history it’s African History and this movie really shows that the struggles of indigenous people against colonizing powers is the same everywhere.

Chris Stachiw and Heather Drain join Mike to try and parse this incredibly dense film.
