Carmen Miranda

6 March 2020 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am

This documentary explores the life of Brazilian samba sensation Carmen Miranda. After gaining fame in Rio de Janeiro, Miranda was imported to Broadway in the late 1930s where she became the epitome of the exotic Latina. With a series of hit Hollywood musicals in the 1940s, Carmen’s star continued to rise. But, with her banana-topped turban and sultry dance moves, the singer became a source of controversy in South America, where many called her crowd-pleasing act a racist caricature.
