REPLY: movies or documentaries on samba/Carnival

Dear colleagues,

There is also the BBC Documentary "Brasil, Brasil, Samba to Bossa," the first episode in a three-part series about popular music in Brazil. It can be found online only and divided in four parts, as far as I know, but it works very well in class. The episode on samba is really good, featuring interviews not only with famous samba musicians but also with great specialists, such as Hermano Vianna.
