 Winner, Best Film. Dirs. Affonso Uchoa and João Dumans. Brazil, 98 mins. Portuguese with English subtitles. Andre, a teenager, lives in an industrial town in Brazil near an old aluminum factory.

Neighboring Scenes Returns on February 28 with New Latin American Cinema

 By Jordan Raup on January 31, 2018 in Neighboring Scenes
The third annual Neighboring Scenes, a 17-film showcase of contemporary Latin American cinema, co-presented with Cinema Tropical, is coming the Film Society of Lincoln Center, February 28-March 4.
Highlighting impressive recent productions from across the region, this selective slate of premieres exhibits the breadth of styles, techniques, and approaches employed by Latin American filmmakers today. Neighboring Scenes spans a wide geographic range​, featuring established auteurs as well as fresh talent from the international festival scene.
Opening night is the U.S. premiere of Anahí Berneri’s award-winning Alanis, an unflinching portrait of a young mother eking out a living as a prostitute in Buenos Aires. Unfolding over the course of three days, Berneri’s “quietly radical” (Variety) fifth film explores the challenges of urban life as an immigrant woman, and is anchored by Sofía Gala’s fearless performance. Closing out the weekend is the world premiere of a new restoration of Pizza, Beer, and Cigarettes (1998), celebrating its 20th anniversary. Bruno Stagnaro and Adrián Caetano’s landmark film, which follows a pair of less than talented thieves, launched the New Argentine Cinema movement and has continued inspiring Latin American filmmakers for generations.
Other highlights in this year’s lineup include such festival favorites as Niles Atallah’s formally daring Rey, which won the Special Jury Prize at Rotterdam; Santiago Mitre’s political thriller The Summit, an Un Certain Regard selection from Cannes, featuring an impressive international cast; and Fellipe Barbosa’s around-the-world travelogue Gabriel and the Mountain, a two-time prizewinner at Cannes Critics’ Week. The festival also features documentaries about Mexican fishermen, showgirls of the ’70s and ’80s, and the colonialist history of Easter Island; adaptations of Dostoevsky (António, One, Two, Three) and Hans Christian Andersen (The Little Match Girl); and a number of debut features including visual artist Adrián Villar Rojas’s The Theater of Disappearance, a cinematic reimagining of his acclaimed Met rooftop installation.
Organized by Carlos Gutiérrez and Cecilia Barrionuevo.
Tickets go on sale February 9 and are $15; $12 for students, seniors (62+), and Cinema Tropical subscribers; and $10 for Film Society members. Become a member today! See more and save with the 3+ film discount package or $110 All-Access Pass.

FILMS & DESCRIPTIONS
All films screen digitally at the Walter Reade Theater (165 W. 65th St.) unless otherwise noted.
Opening Night
Alanis
Anahí Berneri, Argentina, 2017, 82m
U.S. Premiere
Winner of the Best Director and Best Actress awards at the San Sebastian Film Festival, the fifth feature by Argentinian filmmaker Anahí Berneri is a poignant and compelling drama that portrays three days in the life of a young Buenos Aires mother and sex worker struggling to survive. Featuring a potent performance by Sofía Gala Castaglione in the title role (alongside her real-life son Dante), the film offers an unsentimental and non-moralizing take on a self-determined woman trying to live her unapologetic life while facing contradictory prostitution laws that are intended to protect her but often do the opposite. 
Wednesday, February 28, 7:00pm (Q&A with Anahí Berneri)
António, One, Two, Three / António um dois três 
Leonardo Mouramateus, Portugal/Brazil, 2017, 95m
Portuguese with English subtitles
U.S. Premiere
Reminiscent of the films of Hong Sangsoo and Matías Piñeiro, Mouramateus’s debut offers a simple yet scrambled tale of love, longing, and the theater. After angering his father, António seeks refuge in his ex-girlfriend Mariana’s Lisbon apartment, where he meets Débora, a Brazilian woman on her way to Russia. Inevitably, he ends up romantically involved in different ways with each of them. Meanwhile, António’s autobiographical play—which borrows from Dostoevsky’s White Nights—complicates our understanding of his motivations and our own relationship to the film (which is also based on White Nights). As the film goes on, repetitions of scenes (with slight alterations) further speak to the ambivalence of young love. 
Wednesday, February 28, 9:15pm
Beauties of the Night / Bellas de noche 
María José Cuevas, Mexico, 2016, 91m
Spanish with English subtitles
New York premiere
María José Cuevas’s engrossing and captivating debut feature, winner of the Best Documentary award at the Morelia Film Festival, is a moving portrait of five of Mexico’s most popular and iconic showgirls of the late 1970s and ’80s, almost 40 years after they ruled Mexico’s entertainment world. Eight years in the making, with a keen eye and devoid of any sensationalism, the documentary enters the fascinating world of these women, who have struggled to reinvent themselves after the decline of the burlesque heyday.

IN THE INTENSE NOW

2:00   4:30   7:00   9:30
Through Tuesday, February 13

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY JOÃO MOREIRA SALLES


“To be young was very heaven.” – William Wordsworth. IN THE INTENSE NOW immerses itself in the excitement and heady idealism of the ‘60s. Inspired by Chris Marker’s meditative essays on political radicalism, João Moreira Salles brilliantly collages archival materials from Paris ’68, Prague Spring (and the Soviet invasion), and the Chinese Cultural Revolution. He explores how the intensity of thinking one is revolutionizing the world can feel a lot like the ecstasy of falling in love. And when that moment fades, life’s quotidian realities can become a hard pill to swallow. This is a film that puts those profoundly significant events of 50 years ago into something like proportion. It’s a movie for everyone who ever marched for civil rights, shouted an anti-war slogan, or expected the women’s movement to usher in a brave new world.
With support from the Richard Brick, Geri Ashur, and Sara Bershtel Fund for Social Justice Documentaries

Luiz Simas

Doors: 5:00 pm / Show: 6:00 pm

 

 

$30.00

Luiz Simas
Rio-born Brazilian jazz composer/singer/pianist Luiz Simas is a genuine Carioca ( a native of Rio)! Living in New York since ‘89, he has led original groups in jazz festivals and clubs in the US, Europe and Brazil. Luiz's voice and music have warmed many major venues including Birdland, the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and Iridium in New York, Gamle Logen Hall in Oslo, the Pheasantry in London, the Phillarmonia Hall in Odessa and Sala Cecilia Meirelles in Rio. His CDs include Cafune, Impromptu, Luiz Simas Live in NYC, New Chorinhos from Brazil, Recipe for Rhythm and Mata Atlântica (Atlantic Forest) Piano Suite.

Luiz’ piano playing has been described as “gorgeous, sparkling, virtuosic” and “sassy, clear, vibrant, yet understated”. His voice has been touted as having a “wind-swept, deliriously romantic croon” “at times coming across as a Brazilian Frank Sinatra, but Ol’ Blue Eyes never had backing music as thrillingly exotic as this”

He'll be joined by top musicians Itaiguara on bass, Mauricio Zottarelli and Adriano Santos on drums, Joe Deninzon on violin and Paul Lieberman on sax and flute. A celebration of Luiz’s 70th birthday, this concert will also have many illustrious special guests, such as mandolin player Marilynn Mair, singer Kenia, singer Julia Haughton and several others. The program will include many of Luiz's infectious original tunes and improvisations, as well as his own brilliant arrangements of beloved Brazilian music standards reaching beyond the Brazilian pop base and into jazz, world and bossa nova.

"Luiz Simas is not only a wonderful musician, singer and composer, he is an engaging performer who draws his audience into his witty, joyful, sensuous musical world. Simas epitomizes the fantasies we non-Brazilians have about that wonderful country, and with him we all get to be Brazilian, at least for the a couple hours! - Judy Carmichael, pianist
