“Brazilogy,” a trio of films including “T-Shirt Cantata,” “The Adventures of the Amazon Queen” and “The Hammock Variations,” will premiere as part of the University of Missouri-Rolla Free Film Festival 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall on the UMR campus. Produced and directed by Dr. James Bogan, Curator’s Teaching Professor of art and film at UMR, the hour-long films are free and open to the public.
All three films provide a portrait of life in the Amazon. “Each film chronicles the process of creation, whether it’s a T-shirt design, a model boat, a hammock or poem,” Bogan says. “Each features someone making something, and each film is a pretext to show the beautiful people of the Amazon.”
Bogan calls the films “poetic documentaries.”
“They are made out of real-life experiences rendered with concentrated intensity and an awareness of multiple dimensions at the same time,” he says.
