"What was the message we were sending to everyone? Be free! And that was extremely subversive at the time." Tropicália was a relatively short-lived but hugely influential movement in Brazilian arts and music during the late 1960s. This playfully expressionistic documentary delves deep into the Tropicália story, including amazing archival footage of Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Os Mutantes, Maria Bethânia, Gal Costa, Elis Regina, Tom Ze, and Jorge Ben Jor, among many others.
