Mango Yellow (Amarelo Manga) - Guaranteed to shock even jaded viewers, Claudio Assis' debut feature is seeped in bold, sun-drenched colors. It is a provocative tale of low-rent losers set in the coastal town of Recife, Brazil. Assis' characters seemingly stem from some Carnival hell - a macho butcher and his born-again wife, a forlorn barmaid, a sinister sadist and the gay manager of a flophouse called the Hotel Texas. A cleverly interconnected script propels the action in this highly original film with it's perfect confluence between style and story. Portuguese with English subtitles. "The movie's surreal flavor underscores it's message: This is how the lower half lives in Brazil, and by extension, humanity at it most basic, getting along without the rose-colored protections that affluence affords" -New York Times "Thoughtful and well made... A strong and original new voice in Brazilian cinema" -The Culture Vulture "A Wildcat of a Film" -Variety Mango Yellow (Amarelo Manga) is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative.
