Brazilian Modernism

This short film helps to place Villa-Lobos in the Modernist movement which he was such an important part of in the 1920s. It's especially nice to see the great paintings of Tarsila do Amaral and Cândido Portinari, who were the Modernist equivalents of Villa-Lobos in the visual arts.

This is from a series on art history by Fulvio Pacheco.
