The first U.S. screening of A Paixao de JL, directed by Carlos Nader (2015), about the Brazilian artist José Leonilson. In 1990, Leonilson began to record an audio diary on tape cassettes about his emotions, daily life, and events taking place in Brazil and around the world. Over time, the recordings came to hold a new urgency when Leonilson learns that he is HIV positive.
The program is organized by the Americas Society and Cinema Tropical in collaboration with the Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at The New School.
