The Lusophone Film Club will be starting on Wednesday 19 October with a screening of Complexo Universo Parallelo (2pm, Rendall LT1). This is a documentary about one of the most notorious favelas in Rio de Janeiro, and was filmed by 2 Portuguese brothers who managed to integrate themselves into the community there.

The following week (26 October, 2pm Rendall LT5), we’ll be showing Ilha da Cova da Moura, a documentary about a predominantly Cape-Verdean community on the outskirts of Lisbon. The other films are detailed on the posters going up around the Cypress building today! You can view and download a copy of the poster here.

All films will be shown in Portuguese, so this is a great chance for those learning the language to practice their skills! There will be English subtitles as well, though, so everyone is welcome to come along and watch these fascinating films.
