Brazil's cinema is one of the most important on the Latin American continent and has had a changeful time - in 2020 it will again experience a shock with an enemy of humanism and culture at the head of the state. It caused the most sensation in the early 1960s, when the so-called Cinema Novo became groundbreaking not only for its own country: the preservation of independence seemed possible, and resistance to the imperialist Hollywood seemed successful. The great films of a Glauber Rocha (Terra em transe, Barravento) still look like a single outcry against the injustice of the world today. In Brazil, the fight against standard cinema was declared, and from here the fire ignited the continent. In recent years, Brazil's cinema has been self-confident and has repeatedly presented surprising films that take pleasure in playing with realities and levels of perception. The most recent example is the moving journey through time "The Invisible Life of Euridice Gusmao".
