CLEMENTINA
(Ana Rieper, Brazil, 2018, 75 min. In Portuguese with English subtitles)

US PREMIERE / 9:15pm Sharp

Presented in partnership with Cinema Tropical

A look at the trajectory of Brazilian singer Clementina de Jesus (1901-1987). Revealed belatedly at the age of 62, Clementina became one of the greatest voices of samba, representing the so-called “missing link" between Brazilian culture and its African roots.

Clementina de Jesus was "discovered" at the age of 62 by researcher Hermínio Bello de Carvalho, becoming one of the greatest proponents of Brazilian samba, music, and culture. Immediately recognized by the musical academy for her unique presence and timbre, she worked as a domestic servant until her career was launched following her debut in the iconic Rosa de Ouro spectacle. She was the first black artist to be honored at the Municipal Theater of Rio de Janeiro in a historical show that brought together Paulinho da Viola, João Nogueira, and Elizeth Cardoso, among other prominent figures of samba. Clementina was honored by the Portela Samba School during their 1982 carnival parade. She left a large repository of material used here for the feature documentary, Clementina.
