Saudade do Futuro

Saudade Do Futuro (DVD)

Dreaming of a better life, migrants from the Northeast of Brazil speak about the city of São Paulo, and sing it in prose, songs, stories and multiple sounds. Plot Synopsis: The rhythms and rhymes of the "cantadores," those troubadours from Northeastern Brazil, tell us the beat of São Paulo. Journalist or simple maid, director of an art gallery or home builder, the northeastern immigrants will bring us to sketch a portrait of one of the biggest cities in the world.--DVD description

This is a very beautiful poetic film about the largest city in South America, Sao Paulo told from the perspective of its largest migrant population the Nordestinos. Filled with startling music (forro, repente, embolada) and a cast of warm and humorous characters. Tremendously photographed and edited a total must have for lovers of all Brasilian, and indeed documentary. Just watched it and I have a very big smile on my face. --an Amazon reviewer
