Winner of the 1959 Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or and the 1960 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Orfeu Negro (Black Orpheus) was based on the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice, but updated and played against the colorful background of the Carnival of Brazil, featuring an all-black cast. French director Marcel Camus adapted the movie from Vinicius de Moraes's musical play Orfeu da Conceicao. More than just showcasing samba, Black Orpheus brought this music to life, making Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luiz Bonfa international stars. From the very opening title scene to the climactic Carnival parade, music pervades practically every moment of the film. This movie and it's soundtrack had a major role in leveraging bossa nova popularity outside of Brazil. This first pressing of this reissue is limited to 500 copies.
