Liverpool Radical Film Festival presents the curated series Cannibals and Carnivals: A brief history of Brazilian underground cinema: 1964-1971.
The final installment in this mini-series will be How Tasty was my Little Frenchman (Nelson Pereira dos Santos, 1971). A Frenchman (Arduíno Colassanti), who is part of a faction from his country trying to stake a claim to Brazil before the Portuguese colonize it, is held by a hostile tribe that assumes he is Portuguese. The tribe, allied with the French, is looking to avenge the murder of one of their members by eating a Portuguese soldier during a feast. Although the Frenchman is incorporated into village life, and even given a wife by the tribe, his fate hangs in the balance.
The film will be introduced by Dr Anthony Killick and we would love to hear your thoughts in the film afterwards.
