Watch Black Orpheus, the film that introduced Brazil’s Carnival to the World!

Carnival begins next week. Time to get excited. Nothing can do that like watching Black Orpheus, the 1959 Academy Award winning film of life in the Rio favelas where samba was born.

If this movie does not make you want to visit Brazil, then nothing will.

For anyone interested in Brazilian culture, Black Orpheus, the 1959 Academy Award winning film by Marcel Camus, is a must see. The beauty of Rio de Janeiro during Carnaval is evident throughout the film. Antonio Carlos Jobim (The Girl From Ipanema), Brazil’s well-known samba composer produced the soundtrack. I have the soundtrack on my Ipod and listen to it whenever I fly to Rio.

Enjoy the movie:
