The Hollywood Brazilian Film Festival (HBRFest) has announced the complete programme line-up for its sixth instalment, set to run from November 21-23.
Fernando Coimbra’s thriller Wolf At The Door (pictured) will open the event.
Screenings include the US premieres of the musical fable Lyrics (Quase Samba) by Ricardo Targino and the coming-of-age drama Casa Grande by Fellipe Barbosa.
Hilton Lacerda’s LGBT drama Tattoo (Tatuagem) receives its LA premiere.
HBRFest will also present its sixth annual HBR Honors Award to Edward James Olmos, given to an individual “who not only supports, but paves the way for Brazilian filmmaking.”
“In our sixth year, it is remarkable to see the evolution of Brazilian filmmaking and storytelling,” said executive director Talize Sayegh. “This year’s line-up is one of the strongest in HBRFest history, and we’re excited to be showcasing work that is inspiring, thought-provoking, and celebratory.”
Copa Air and the Brazilian Consulate sponsor the festival and all screenings excluding opening night are free.
