London’s Brazilian Film Festival

Instigated by Circuito Inffinito, who showcase yearly the best of the country’s diverse cinema scene in eight cities across the globe, the second London edition kicks off with a Gala screening at the BAFTA with the unmissable Lula, The Son of Brasil. The film tells the story of the young mechanic who would go on to become president of Brasil. If you prefer your biography a little less serious, check out the glamorous and tragic story of popular entertainer-turned-pornstar Rita Cadillac – The Lady of The People. However, there’s plenty more to be seen, from a twisted rom-com about a threesome gone wrong to a series as part of Festival Brazil exploring the development, impact and influence of key figures in the music scene.
