From the golden era of the Radio Nacional, through Bossa Nova to Tropicalia, Samba and MPB, Me, My Father and the Cariocas is a love letter to Brazil and its music.

Directed by Lúcia Veríssimo, daughter of Cariocas’ conductor Severino Filho, the film bubbles with intimate interviews that only a trusted insider could glean.

Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso: Veríssimo’s subjects read like a who’s who of Brazilian music royalty, making this a vital artefact that will inform and inspire music lovers.


Director Lúcia Veríssimo will be joining us in person for an open-floor Q&A.
