CCBB (Cultural Center Banco do Brasil) is bringing to Brasília the film festival Monstros no Cinema (Monsters in the cinema), a selection with acclaimed movies that can both scares and enchants viewers around the world. The retrospective brings together main titles produced, among various styles, periods and nationalities, including films made in Brazil. There will be 39 films, divided into 60 sessions.

“Monstros no Cinema” will show how the film industry has created and still manages to keep such a profitable subgenre. From the beginning, in Germany, with “Der Golem” (1920), through the classic monsters from Universal studios (Drácula [1931], Frankenstein [1931], The Mummy [1932], The Wolf Man [1941]), arriving in the period of the Cold War and the nuclear threat of Godzilla (1954), including beings from other planets, like Alien (1979) and those fruits of our nightmares, such as A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) or unsuccessful experiences like The Fly (1986). Brazil will be represented with ‘À Meia Noite Levarei Sua Alma’ (At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul), released by the José Mojica Marins in 1964, and Mar Negro (Black Sea), by Rodrigo Aragão, who revolutionized the genre of Brazilian horror with its productions. The children, almost always victims of these evil creatures, will be able to go without fear to check Monsters Inc and Mad Monster Party (1967).

The event is entirely free. Check out the full programme:
