VIRAMUNDO A Journey with GILBERTO GIL
Australian Premiere for Antenna Documentary Film Festival
Iconic Brazilian singer, guitarist and songwriter Gilberto Gil undertakes a musical journey across the globe: from Bahia in Brazil and townships in Soweto and Johannesburg, to indigenous communities in Sydney and Yirrkala in Northern Australia. As one of the key figures in Brazil’s tropic├ília movement and with an enduring music career, Gil has spent many years touring the globe. Here however, the former Minister of Culture goes on a different kind of tour exploring issues of racism and identity and how music and creativity can help promote a new, culuturally diverse world vision. Director Pierre-Yves Borgeaud documents the trip, which includes Gil meeting Peter Garret in Australia, mixing concert footage from South Africa and the Amazonian island of Isla de Flores, with Gil’s conversations along the way and ultimately his hopes and doubts, for future generations. View the trailer here.
