Everything Blue

Director: Jesse Acevedo

Brazil. 2004| 76 mins


Audience Award at Palm Springs International Film Festival, Official Selection 2005 Seattle Film Festival.

An unprecedented exploration of Brazilian music, Everything Blue uncovers the long history of struggle, sorrow, and political dissent that embodies the soul of Samba. This beautifully crafted exploration of Brazilian music travels from Salvador de Bahia to Rio, capturing magical music performances in the places where samba has developed, and illuminating the defiantly celebratory spirit of an outcast people searching for tolerance, peace, and understanding through music. The film features spectacular landscape cinematography, with performances by world famous Caetano Velososo, haunting music sung by Virginina Rodriguez, and the heartbreaking rhythms of the shanty towns of Rio sung by the beautiful elderly voices of the old guard of Portela. In Portuguese with English Subtitles.
