Across his life, the Rio de Janeiro-born Andrade produced only five fiction features, a bevy of shorts, and a single essay film, 1962’s Garrincha: Hero of the Jungle, but altogether these comprise an insurgent body of work more than sufficient to mark him as a giant of Brazil’s stylistically daring, status quo-shaking Cinema Novo revolution. Leaving university to pursue a filmmaking career, Andrade came to international attention via his second feature, 1969’s Macunaíma, hailed as one of Cinema Novo’s masterworks, but his other films are no less vital, showcasing a heady combination of political provocation, verboten subject matters, and modernist experimentation. Admirers of John Waters, Pedro Almodóvar, and the chromatic exuberance of the Tropicália movement will find something to enjoy here, though in the end, Andrade defies comparison.
