Film Screening at The New School – A Paixão de JL

Americas Society

October 19, 2017


This event is free and open to the public but registration is required.

Join us for the first U.S. screening of A Paixao de JL, directed by Carlos Nader (2015), about the Brazilian artist José Leonilson. In 1990, Leonilson began to record an audio diary on tape cassettes about his emotions, daily life, and events taking place in Brazil and around the world. Over time, the recordings came to hold a new urgency when Leonilson learns that he is HIV positive.

Learn about another film screening at The New School on October 25 of Feliciano Centurión: Abrazo Íntimo al Natural.

Learn about Americas Society's exhibition José Leonilson: Empty Man, on view September 27–February 3, 2018.
