Brazilian Movie Night: Eu, Meu Pai e Os Cariocas -Me, My Father and the Cariocas
Join us for a Brazilian Movie night! We can get together for some drinks afterward, in case there is a quorum. Let's meet next to the box office before and after the movie. Me, My Father and the Cariocas is an engaging and fascinating journey through 70 years of the history of Brazilian music. From the golden era of the Radio Nacional, through Bossa Nova, Tropicalia, Samba, MPB (Musica Popular Brasileira) and up to these days, the film is a love letter to the cultural legacy of the South American country. The film was conceived, directed, produced and narrated by the actress Lúcia Verissimo—daughter of the maestro Severino Filho, founder of the influential vocal group Os Cariocas, launchers of the Bossa Nova movement—who had direct access to some of the who's who of Brazilian music, including artists, musicologists, writers, maestros, composers and historians. Featuring a vast collection of photographs, clips from films and videos, and featuring over 100 songs, Me, My Father and the Cariocas narrates how historical facts had a major influence in the development of the exuberant Brazilian music scene, and it's a must-see for any music lover.

What we're about

Public Group


The New York Brazilian Portuguese Meetup (NYBP) is a fusion of Brazilian culture and Portuguese language to bring Brazil closer to New York.

We host events which encourage members to better understand the Brazilian culture, such as samba and forró lessons, Brazilian movies and concerts, bate-papo (light conversation in Portuguese), happy hour, picnic, and much more. We encourage everyone to speak in Portuguese only to truly understand Brazil and its friendly people. It is an opportunity to practice your language skills, meet nice people, network, and have fun!

Our Facebook page has Portuguese language tips, travel tips, curiosities about Brazil and its culture, and other tools to help you improve your Portuguese. You can join us and like us on

So, welcome to the NYBP Meetup group. We hope you get a lot out of the experience and bring something to the group as well.

Até breve e obrigada por ser parte do nosso grupo!
