Beyond Ipanema: Ondas brasileiras na música global (Beyond Ipanema: Brazilian Waves in Global Music)

2009. Brazil/USA. Written and directed by Guto Barra, Béco Dranoff. For decades Brazilian music has captivated audiences worldwide. What makes Brazilian music such a powerful force? Why does bossa nova still lure DJs and producers fifty years after it was created? Why does the Tropicália movement resonate so deeply with the alternative-rock crowd? Beyond Ipanema explores the Brazilian music experience outside of Brazil, accompanied by a specially curated soundtrack featuring Brazilian classics reinterpreted by a new generation of artists. World premiere. 89 min.

Plays at the MOMA in NYC. Info here.
