"""Description:As explained in the Introduction, Brazil has had a rocky time for the last twenty to thirty years. After almost being totally destroyed during the early 1990's, Brazilian cinema has experienced a great renaissance. This book covers the full range of this renaissance, with various essays touching on the artistic, political, religious, and socio-economic realities that characterize this movement. Gracing the cover is a still from perhaps the best-known (and best-loved) film of the era, ""Central Station"" (1998), a movie that is mentioned and discussed frequently in the text. For those interested in expanding their horizons, especially in terms of cinema, this book is an engaging read."""
