Black Orpheus

This IC favorite retells the Greek legend of Orfeu and Eurydice as they fall in love and run through the favelas of Rio during Carnaval, away from Orfeu’s spiteful fiancée and a hitman dressed like Death. Non-professional actors engaged in authentic ritual and ceremony, bossa nova vibes, Carnaval footage—a classic of ‘native cinema.’
