introduced to world audiences filmmakers such as Joaquim Pedro de Andrade, Carlos Diegues,
Gláuber Rocha and Nelson Pereira dos Santos. Additionally, the series features new
productions from the next generation of Brazilian filmmakers who have demonstrated new
courses for Brazilian cinema and who are earning a new legion of fans with global
recognition much like their predecessors almost three decades before.
