BLACK ORPHEUS (1959) Marcel Camus

  • South Orange Public Library (map)

Young lovers Orfeu and Eurydice run through the favelas of Rio during Carnaval, on the lam from a hitman dressed like Death and Orfeu's vengeful fiancée Mira, passing between moments of fantasy and stark reality in this impressionistic retelling of the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice.


Join us for this special screening of Black Orpheus by Marcel Camus. This event is FREE to the public thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the South Orange Public Library. Refreshments will be served and a Q&A will follow the film screening!
