Abstract

Glauber Rocha—director of such films as Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol (Black God, White Devil, Brazil, 1964)—articulates in “The Aesthetics of Hunger,” his statement of principles for Brazil’s cinema novo. Here he speaks to underdevelopment, hunger, and violence as the engines behind a politically engaged cinema. Influenced by Frantz Fanon, Rocha argues that the colonizers will recognize the colonized only though acts of violence, both in the realm of the real and in the realm of representation.
