Madame Satã

(Karim Aïnouz, 2002)

Wed, Apr 9, 2014 7 PM

Aïnouz’s debut feature, Madame Satã, remains his best-known work in the states. It’s a hypnotic recreation of the life one of Brazil’s most famous drag queens and gay icons, João Francisco dos Santos—a Josephine Baker-wannabe who rose from the ghettos of Rio in the 1930s to become a national figure of defiance and resistance. As LA Weekly noted, lead actor Lázaro Ramos “combines the street swagger of a hard-core homo thug with the balletic grace of a self-created queen,” offering “a subversive take on black cool and black queerness.” (103 mins., 35mm)

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Karim Aïnouz will not be able to attend the screening of Madame Satã. The screening will take place as scheduled. We apologize for any inconvenience.
