Directed by Carlos Diegues
Brazil / France 1984

 

  A sequel, of sorts, to Carlos Diegues' Ganga Zumba, this historical saga is a stirring fusion of folklore, political impact and dynamic story-telling, realized in vibrant tropical colors and set to the pulsing beat of Gilberto Gil's musical score. After the slave revolt of 1641, groups of runaway black slaves escaped to mountainous jungle strongholds where they formed self-governing communities. This film is the chronicle of the most famous of these "black Eldorados" which flourished for several decades under the reign of the legendary chieftain Ganga Zumba.

Comments:

Although not anamorphic - this is not a bad image at all from NY'er. Both the varying bitrate and my own investigation lead me to believe that it is progressively transferred. Color is excellent, as is sharpness and contrast. Removable subtitles, original audio and a lengthy, if somewhat poor condition, 'Making of...' featurette top off this wonderful releases. I was very impressed by the film and will seek out Carlos Diegues' Ganga Zumba now. Thanks for bringing this out digitally NY'er!
