Episode 18 – Black Orpheus (1959) with Rebecca Futo Kennedy

Depressa! Toma! Toca faz o sol nasce! Bolstered by yet another mega guest, Dr. Rebecca Futo Kennedy, the creative mind behind Classics at the Intersections, we get into Marcel Camus’ French-Brazilian adaptation of Greek myth, Black Orpheus (Orfeu Negro). We also tease our future dive into Thermae Romae and bring in It Follows into the mix. We dive into the importance of play, aging, death, Casio keyboards and how this movie might secretly be a horror film masquerading as a tragedy. Final verdict: Cala boca! Ele está fazendo levantar o sol.
