"[This] strange, dreamy road movie reveals a vanishing way of life"
Gabriel Mascaro's Venice and Toronto-winning film explores quotidian life inside the Vaquejada rodeo— one of the largest agro-business events in Brazil. The result is at once political and poetic: a stunning meditation on the contradictions of consumption, gender, identity, and the cultural and socio-economic changes facing Northern Brazil.
Neon Bull opens tomorrow at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, featuring a Q&A with filmmaker Gabriel Mascaro and actress Maeve Jinkings. A retrospective of Mascaro's other work runs April 15-21.
