Sans Souci Brazil: 2nd edition - Kids Screening
This year we put out a call this year for films connected with Brazil, and the results were astounding. For our kid-centric screening, we selected a few other films from our archives as well, which we thought were a great fit for this program. This selection is one of four online screenings.

The films listed here will be available to watch on the screening page from Aug 10-24, as well as at a Facebook Watch Party on our FB page August 10 at 11am MST, as one of four online screenings.

This artistic work flows in the sense of breaking paradigms from the classic romantic to the contemporary urban. The urban culture, the modern young man, mixing and interacting intimately with the work of Carlos Gomes, transcending the feeling and living every moment, exhaling music through the pores of the interpreters, making the popular-classic and popular-classic, bringing expressions which are almost always distanced by (pre) concepts.
