Historic Black Cinema at Mayme A. Clayton – Feb. 26

Spend the afternoon at the Mayme A. Clayton Library and Museum for a screening and discussion of the classic film, Orfeu Negro (Black Orpheus). Winner of both the Academy Award for best foreign-language film and the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or, Marcel Camus’ Black Orpheus (Orfeu negro) brings the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice to the twentieth-century madness of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. With its eye-popping photography and ravishing, epochal soundtrack, Black Orpheus was an international cultural event, and it kicked off the bossa nova craze that set hi- fi stereos across America spinning. Dubbed in English. (Criteria Collection) Saturday, Feb. 26  at 4 p.m. at 4130 Overland Avenue, Culver City, CA, 90230
