Cine Rabeca - Music, Memory, Ethnography, Transformation

This Documentary is an ethereal exploration of the intricate interplay between the tangible and the imagined, memory and the present moment. Set against the backdrop of Brazil's lush sugar cane fields, this film concert melds vibrant music with archival imagery captured by artists and ethnographers between 1991 and 2009. On stage, artists Luiz Paixão and Renata Rosa engage in a captivating cinematic reunion with their own trajectories, bringing the past to life through improvisation with their 'rabecas', a traditional Brazilian fiddle, and constant self-reinvention.
