Brasilianischer Underground

Bei Bitter Cinema lesenswerte Informationen (mit Links natürlich) zur schmutzigeren Seite des brasilianischen Kinos:

Boca do Lixo - it means "Mouth of Garbage" in Portuguese, and it's one of the sleazier and most crime-ridden parts of Sao Paulo (the name is a play on a much swankier and wealthier part of town, Boca do Luxo, "Mouth of Luxury"). It's also the neighborhood where some of Brazil's sleazier cinematic offerings were shot. Consider these films to be the moist and grimier flipside to Brazil's Cinema Novo, a homegrown movement that borrowed from neo-realism and ethnographic films to address the country's political and social ills.
