Brasil Summerfest in association with Cinema Tropical presents:

"BADI" Film Screening followed by Q&A with Badi Assad.

(Edu Felistoque, Brazil, 2017, 85 min. In Portuguese with English subtitles)

Directed by Edu Felistoque, Badi observes the personal trajectory and career of the singer, guitarist, and composer Badi Assad. From classical to pop, the film follows Badi and her guitar as they move through the hyper-masculine musical universe - persistently reinventing herself and confronting challenges, including the pressure of belonging to a family of virtuoso musicians, with lightness. This gentle and strong woman, with her own creative process and enormous talent, is not afraid to take risks and charm the world without losing sight of who she is: a simple girl from the interior of São Paulo who values not strident success but the simple emotionality of art and life. The documentary features guest appearances by the Assad brothers, Larry Coryell, Toquinho, Naná Vasconcelos, Seu Jorge, and other great names of Brazilian and International music.

The School of Jazz and Contemporary Music at The New School is pleased to host this screening and Q&A as part of Brasil Summerfest.

Admission is free; registration is required.
