In 1967, Tom Ze created the Tropicalia movement along with Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. The movement called for both a new aesthetic and a new Brazil at a time when the country was under the thumb of a military dictator. In 1990, David Byrne played an instrumental role in troublemaker Tom Ze's comeback by producing several of his albums. Whimsical and provocative, Tom Ze's music is impossible to classify. Though rooted in the tradition of the northeast where he grew up, it's been shaped by the hyper-urban environment of Sao Paulo, where he lives. Lyonel Kouro uses painting and a scratch technique on 35 mm film to create the visual universe permeating this film. In an interview with Romy Kolpa Kopoul (Radio Nova's renowned "connector"), Tom Ze talks about women, Brazil, and himself. Portuguese with English/French subtitles. Stereo 5.1 Sound.
