With the opening of O Cinema in Wynwood and the Coral Gables Art Cinema, Miami will soon have twice as many independent movie theaters. In the meantime, film festivals are still your best chance to see indie foreign flicks. So invade the Colony Theatre this Thursday for three gritty movies from the Brazilian Film Festival.
At the 7 p.m. documentary, Dzi Croquettes, hear Liza Minnelli and Gilberto Gil rave about an influential and transgendered Brazilian theater troupe. When you can no longer distinguish man from woman, stay seated for A Vaca, a short film where workers in a slaughterhouse try to rebuild a cow.
