Unhinged Jaw and Hairy Denim Productions is happy to announce that the short documentary movie South American Cho-Low will make its New York premiere as part of Cine Meccanica’s free, regular film series on Wednesday, Nov. 19 in Brooklyn at Lady Jay’s. The film will screen at 8:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.
South American Cho-Low, a 16-minute documentary directed by American journalist Phuong-Cac Nguyen, chronicles the intersection point between East Los Angeles lowrider culture and “cholo” style in Brazil. Featured are major personalities and icons from the subculture including renowned L.A.-based photographer Estevan Oriol, Brazilian ambassador of lowrider culture and local icon Antonio Carlos Batista “Alemão” Filho, Sao Paulo tattoo artist Luiz “Gordo” Teixeira, and Mariana de Paula Martins and her husband Leandro Vinicius Pimenta Cabellos, who use customized bikes through their Lado Norte club to bring hope to children living in Sao Paulo’s favelas (slums).
South American Cho-Low shows the Brazilian interpretation of lowrider culture and cholo style provoke the deeper question of how to maintain a Brazilian identity.
The New York showing is the latest screening date of the film. Previous dates included stops in the Bay Area, at the Cine + Mas San Francisco Latino Film Festival, Los Angeles and Chicago.
