Documentary about Brazil's Tropicalia movement in the 1960s

Tropicalia is a documentary about the 1960s music scene in Brazil, featuring Boing Boing patron saints Os Mutantes (formed in 1966 and still doing their thing!).

Tropicália tells the story of the rich artistic and cultural movement born in the late 1960s in Brazil. From a collective of like-minded souls, 'tropicália' used music, poetry, theatre, and avant-garde visual art to confront the political establishment. The film highlights the struggle 'tropicália' artists endured to protect their right to freely express revolutionary thought at a time of political turbulence in Brazil.

For folks who live in Los Angeles, there's a screening on September 28 at the Velaslavasay Panorama.
