New York -- On April 22, 2010 you can see the cinebiography of the notorious musician Arnaldo Baptista, former lead singer of the band Os Mutantes.

This film is one of a series of Brazilian films featured at the 92Y Tribeca theatre.

Cinema Tropical’s Music + Film Series premiered summer 2009 in conjunction with 92YTribeca and among other Latin American music documentaries, the debut series featured the Brazilian film The Man Who Bottles Clouds by Denise Dummont.

The Fall 2009 edition was devoted exclusively to Brazilian music documentaries, acknowledging the numerous Brazilian filmmakers who have turned the camera to follow and record the great traditions of Brazilian music. Following the success of the Fall series the 2010 edition of Cinema Tropical’s Music + Film Series focuses again on Brazilian music documentaries and will continue to expose New York audiences to a variety of different themes in Brazilian music and culture.

Helena Solberg’s film The Enchanted Word is a reflection on how popular music is an unexpected vehicle for poetry and literature in Brazil, a country with a strong oral tradition while The Mystery of Samba directed by Carolina Jabor and Lula Buarque de Hollanda pays homage to the “Velha Guarda" founding members of Portela, one of Rio’s most famous samba schools.

Simonal - No One Knows How Tough it Was directed by Claudio Manoel, Micael Langer and Calvito Leal tells the political and personal story of the fall from grace of one of Brazil’s biggest stars during the dictatorship era and Paulo Henrique Fontenelle’s film “Loki -Arnaldo Baptista “ focuses on another notorious musician of the 60’s, the leader of the world famous band “ Os Mutantes“.
