Cinema Novo was a movement among Brazilian filmmakers in the 1950s and 1960s. It is encapsulated in the Portuguese phrase "Uma câmera na mão e uma idéia na cabeça" ("a camera in the hand and an idea in the head"). The movement included directors Glauber Rocha, Nelson Pereira dos Santos, Carlos Diegues and Joaquim Pedro de Andrade. Its main topics revolved around Brazilian poverty, mainly using the dry northeast and large cities as settings.
