Black Orpheus

After the great conversations of the last two episodes we're delighted to report that Stephen was interested in staying on for a couple more. He joins us again for Black Orpheus, Marcel Camus' ode to Greek myth and Brazilian culture from 1959.

The film that launched bossa nova into the northern hemisphere -- it's soundtrack sold millions of copies in the US and Europe -- Black Orpheus pulses with the beat of Carnival as escape: from failed love, from poverty, but not, notably, from fate.
