Cinema for Portuguese Conversation uses Brazilian, Portuguese, and Lusophone African cinema to enhance the study of Portuguese language and culture, including the sertao, urban violence, political transitions, women, and the mythological legend of Orpheus. Fourteen feature films are covered, drawn largely from modern Brazilian film, but also examples from Cape Verde and Portugal. Each chapter covers a single film, its vocabulary and language, as well as discussion of the cultural implications.
