Publication, which accompanies the tribute on the Contemporary Brazilian Cinema. The 15 out of the 18 films, produced from 1995 to 2005, reveal the face of a restless cinema with immense social conscience. The three films that were directed before this period are Barren Lives (1963), Entranced Earth (1967) and Bye Bye Brazil (1979). These are films-point of reference in the history of Brazilian cinema and cinema novo, the first one exceptionally reviewed by Andreas Pagoulatos and the other two reviewed by the editor of the publication, Nikos Savvatis. This concise thematic monograph opens with texts by the editor and José Carlos Avellar, followed by the exceptional text from Glauber Rocha “The Aesthetic of Hunger” and the rest of the films critically reviewed.
