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. Say seated for A Vaca, a short film where workers in a slaughterhouse try to rebuild a cow. The next film, Broken Dreams, might be able to erase the bovine brutality by proving that prostitutes in Rio have big hearts and big dreams.
