The Cornell Cinema presents Bel Borba Aqui: A Man and a City, a film directed by Andre Constantini and Burt Sun. Set to the rhythms of Brazil, Bel Borba Aqui: A Man and a City introduces a one-man life-force who proves that his country is a lot more than favelas, soccer, and drugs. The Film Forum writes: "For the past 35 years, Bel Borba has been transforming his hometown of Salvador, Brazil with an amazing array of works of public art. Using paint, sand, tiles, clay, metal, wood, and just about anything else he comes across, Bel Borba makes art that is a natural extension of his exuberant personality."
