As part of the Brazil Film Festival 2017, LMAC and Brazil Film Fest proudly present the José Walter Lima directed documentary, Rogério Duarte, the Tropicalist at TIFF Bell Lightbox, on November 5 at 11am. Tickets are available here. Right after the film screening, make sure to stop by at Lula for the Neruda Arts Presents show featuring Chilean artist, Emila Diaz live at 1:30pm.
Designer, musician, poet and activist, Rogerio Duarte was one of the mentors of the Tropicalist movement. Thinker and prolific artist, he was at the forefront of all that was most modern in the Brazilian culture, especially in the 1960s and 1970s. As Glauber Rocha told Caetano Veloso: “do not forget that behind each one of us there is Rogerio Duarte”.
