Cinema Series: LUISA MARINHO and GABRIEL SIMI

We are so pleased to present our next Cinema Series Residency Awardees, Luisa Marinho and Gabriel Simi, who will present Brazilian Enchantment in a carnivalesque celebration.

Doors at 6:30p

RSVP to artists@wythehotel.com

The evening will begin with a screening of the films Desancanto (Disenchantment) and Buraco (Hole) which narrate the mysteries of king Dom Sebastião who presents a central figure to this year’s Carnival.  This will be coupled with a dive into Brazilian musical traditions with live performances from musicians Gabriel Cavalcante, João Camarero, and Fernando Leitzke.  Works by Paraiso do Tuiuti Carnavalesco (Director of Carnival), João Victor Araujo, will then outline how the 2020’s parade will greet the king, and a written piece by the samba school researcher João Gustavo Melo will round out the voices.
