Probably one of Helena Solberg's most emblematic work, the 1995 documentary chronicles the life and career of actress Carmen Miranda, who found fame in Hollywood in the 1940s by incarnating the Latin American woman.
Born in Portugal and raised in Brazil, Carmen Miranda became in the 1940s the most famous Brazilian to conquer Hollywood. However, for Americans, she has always been a stereotypical figure with bowl of fruits on her head. The film investigates the mystique surrounding the actress while trying to paint a portrait beyond this stigma.
The screening will be introduced by curator Natalia Sobrino Christofoletti.
