Films at AAMP: Black Orpheus
In conjunction with our current exhibition, Gardens of the Mind: Echoes of the Feminine View, AAMP screens the 1959 landmark film Black Orpheus (Orfeu Negro) by Marcel Camus.
Winner of both the Academy Award for best foreign-language film and the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or, Camus’ Black Orpheus brings the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice to the twentieth-century madness of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro and the hillside slums of Brazil. With its eye-popping photography and ravishing, epochal soundtrack, Black Orpheus was an international cultural event, a celebration of life, a landmark of black cinema as well as the musical that introduced bossa nova to the world. Free with RSVP
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for guest to view at the African American Museum in Philadelphia, 701 Arch Street Philadelphia, PA 19106. Gardens of the Mind before the screening. Film begins promptly at 6:45 p.m. RSVP online today!
