The Brazilian Documentary Film Series continues with the North Carolina premiere of:
Estamira
(Marcos Prado, 2004, 127 min, Brazil, Portuguese w/ English Subtitles, DVDIsao Yukisada, 2001, 122 min, Japan, in Japanese & Korean w/ English Subtitles, Color, DVD)


-- Introduced by Aaron J. Lorenz, PhD, Post-Doctoral Associate of Luso-Brazilian Studies. Q&A to follow!
In Marcos Prado’s first beautifully shot documentary, he reveals the daily life of a 60 year old woman who has survived for twenty years scavenging in Rio de Janeiro’s Jardim Gramacho garbage dump. Alternating between extreme lucidity, prophecy, and schizophrenia, Doña Estamira forces the viewer to rethink modernity and progress from the perspective of waste. A profound allegory of contemporary society, the documentary explores race, gender, and class discrimination from Estamira’s stubborn, independent, and critical perspective.
--Winner of the Sutherland Trophy at the 2005 British Film Institute Awards, the Special Jury Award for Best Cinematography at the 2005 Miami Film Festival, the International for Best Documentary at the 2004 São Paolo International Film Festival, and recipient of the FIPRESCI Prize at the 2005 Viennale!

**RESCHEDULED** due to rain -- Monthy Python is now showing on Saturday April 9th at 8:15pm, on the East Campus Quad!The First Year Library Advisory Board presents "April Fools on the Quad" - featuring a special outdoor screening of:
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
(Terry Gilliam & Terry Jones, 1975, 89 min, UK, in English, Color, DVD)
-- Free Popcorn and beverages will be provided!


From its opening multi-language titles (is that Swedish?) to the closing arrest of the entire Dark Ages cast by modern-day bobbies, this film helped to define 'irreverence' and became an instant cult classic. This time the Pythons savage the legend of King Arthur, juxtaposing some excellently selected exterior locations with an unending stream of anachronistic one-liners, non-sequiturs, and slapstick set pieces. When the mythical king of the Britons leads his knights on a quest for the Holy Grail, they face a wide array of horrors, including a persistent Black Knight, a three-headed giant, a cadre of shrubbery-challenged knights, the perilous Castle Anthrax, a killer rabbit, a house of virgins, and a handful of rude Frenchmen.
Sponsored by the First Year Library Advisory Board, the Duke University Libraries, Devils After Dark, and the Program in the Arts of the Moving Image (AMI).
