N.p. N.p., 1959. Collection of eight vintage oversize borderless double weight reference photographs from the 1959 French film.

A key film that captured the essence of an era, a music, and a place, namely the modern Carnival, bossa nova, and Brazil, as well as an important intersection of European and Brazilian viewpoints, merging the talents of French director Marcel 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 and shot on location in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

12 x 9.5 inches. Very Good plus, with light wear to the corners.
