There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

The reopening of AFS Cinema presents a fantastic opportunity to revisit art house favorites. BLACK ORPHEUS is a wonder in every respect—expressionistic performances, stunning setting from the hills of Rio to the center of Carnival, its vibrant color, and its beautiful bossa nova music. A cornerstone for many cinephiles, the film also tops the favorite film lists of musicians, as the way both music and the soundscape function in the film is brilliant and unusual. Enjoy this opportunity to see it on a gorgeous restored 35mm print.
