The inaugural Brazilian Film Festival will be held at Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) at Mid Valley in Kuala Lumpur from Sept 21 to Sept 24.
The film festival will feature three popular Brazillian flicks – Aquarius, Bacurau, and Amazonia Groove. And best of all, you'll be able to watch these movies for free.
“We are bringing to Malaysia two of the most critically acclaimed Brazilian films of the last few years, Aquarius and Bacurau, as well as a very beautiful documentary about the music in the Amazon basin, Amazonia Groove," Ary Norton de Murat Quintella, ambassador of Brazil to Malaysia, said in a press statement.
"A lot of the scenes of Amazonia Groove were filmed in Belem, in the State of Para... Para has a lot of similarities with East Malaysia, both in terms of their love for music and their relation with nature, and viewers will be able to see that first hand," he added.
The Brazilian Film Festival, organised by the Brazilian Embassy in Malaysia, is free and open to the public. All movies are in Portuguese, with English subtitles.
Ticket redemption starts one hour prior to each screening, at GSC Mid Valley, on a first-come, first-served basis.
