1966’s “Black God, White Devil” in a 35mm black-and-white print

Tonight at 7:00, the Migrating Forms Film Festival is showing Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol (Black God, White Devil) (1964) as part of a retrospective of Glauber Rocha’s films.
Jonathan Romney for Uncut:

You might imagine that by now the history of cinema would be a written book, done and dusted. But there seem to be endless directors from the past left to be discovered – or, if they’ve had the misfortune to be forgotten, rediscovered. One such is Glauber Rocha, a pioneer of the Cinema Novo movement that galvanised Brazilian cinema in the 1960s. In Brazil, Glauber Rocha is anything but forgotten: there the Bahia-born director, who died in 1981 aged 43, is still revered and widely-screened, and his 1964 film Black God White Devil has been voted the greatest Brazilian film of all time. Outside Brazil, though, Glauber Rocha’s name has been largely neglected, his films generally associated with the wave of radicalism and sometimes visionary cinematic practice that emerged from Third World cinema in the 60s.
