<i>Black Orpheus</i>

Colorado Public Radio's Howie Movshovitz reports on the remake of the classic Brazilian film, Black Orpheus. Unlike the original, the new movie plays up to the reality of black life in Brazil, including the violence and the poverty, and uses the backdrop of Carnival to highlight the discrepancies in Brazilian society.
