Black Orpheus [Orfeo negro]

Paris, Rome, and Rio de Janiero: Dispat Films, 1959. Two vintage borderless double weight still photographs (one oversize) from the classic 1959 film, directed by French auteur Marcel Camus, a joint effort financed by production companies in France, Italy, and Brazil.

A key film that captured the essence of an era, a music, and a place, namely the modern Carnaval, bossa nova, and Brazil, as well as an important intersection of European and Brazilian viewpoints, mixing the talents of French director Camus and Brazilian composer-performers Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luis Bonfa. Winner of the Palme d’Or and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Set in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and shot there on location.

10 x 8.25 inches and 12 x 9.5 inches. Very Good plus.
