Samba Cine Club is a Brazilian cultural project that happens once a month in Melbourne. It is an initiative to promote Brazilian culture through film and music. We want to go beyond the cliche en vogue of “samba, carnival, caipirinhas, naked women and soccer”. Not because we don’t like these things (we love them all!) but we feel that the stereotype is limiting in many ways, especially in artistic expression.

As an English language program, it also provides an opportunity for non-latinos to find out about the backgrounds of artists and their music.
