In 17th-century Brazil, groups of runaway black slaves escaped to mountainous jungle strongholds, where they formed self-governing communities known as quilombos.

Byebye Brasil ( Visual )
31 editions published between 1979 and 2007 in Portuguese and English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This example of Cinema Novo filmmaking follows a smalltime itinerant sideshow as they ply the dusty backroads of northern Brazil. The troupe consists of a Black strongman, Salome, Queen of the Rhumba, and her lover Lord Cigano. Wherever they go, even in the Amazon jungle, however, they encounter indifference. People prefer to watch television. Diegues uses American music and the garish manifestations of popular culture - nightclubs, discos, TV and radio - to comment on the ambivalencies of "progress" and the destruction of Indian culture

Xica da Silva by Carlos Diegues ( Visual )

Based on the true story of the "Brazilian Joan of Arc," this film tells of a legendary black slave who rose to power during Brazil's 18th-century diamond rush. Enchanting João Fernandes, the Portuguese King's diamond contractor, with her sexual prowess, Xica was made his mistress, hostess, and adviser. Fernandes lavished jewels, gowns and other extravagances on her until news of his profligacy reached the ears of the distant monarch. João Fernandes was recalled to the mother country; Xica faded into obscurity. This "festive exercise in Brazilian Baroque is dominated by Zeze Motta, a combination of Eartha Kitt and Carmen Miranda..."

Cinéma Novo l'âge d'or du cinéma brésilien by Dominique Dreyfus ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in Portuguese and French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Indiqué sur la jaquette : Tourné en 1967 pour une télévision allemande, Cinema Novo présente les chefs de file du "cinéma qui se fait aujourd'hui au Brésil" - les chefs de file moins un, car Joaquim Pedro de Andrade est derrière la caméra pour nous montrer, dans un style de reportage, Carlos Diegues, Glauber Rocha, Domingos de Oliveira, Arnaldo Jabor et d'autres au travail, en cours de tournage, de montage, ou de négociation. "Une caméra en main, une idée en tête" : défense et illustration de la fameuse devise de Nelson Pereira dos Santos - père du nouveau cinéma brésilien, avec des films tels que "Rio 40 Graus" (1955) ou "Vidas secas" (1963), - qui sert de fil conducteur à cette incursion dans le jeune cinéma brésilien des premières années de la dictature. Au-delà d'une même précarité financière, ce "nouveau cinéma" se démarque par sa cohésion, et se donne (tel est du moins ce que souhaite alors en montrer Andrade) comme un véritable groupe de discussions et d'échanges, une plateforme de réflexion transdisciplinaire où l'on croise également architectes et figures historiques de la bossa nova. Une unité dont l'origine se trouverait dans la résistance au "cinéma standard" et, plus loin, au régime en place, évoqué de manière très allusive - gageons que le cinéaste n'a pas alors toute licence pour dévoiler les fondements idéologiques du mouvement, dont il préfère livrer un compte relativement neutre
