Caixa Cultural Presents: O Cinema de Margarethe Von Trotta

From next Tuesday, March 6th, to Sunday, March 18th, you can enjoy the film exhibit “O Cinema de Margarethe Von Trotta” (The Cinema of Margarethe Von Trotta) in Caixa Cultural, in Centro. The exhibit will run during the week of International Women’s Day, almost certainly a nod to Trotta’s skill at filtering 20th century German politics through the perspective of female characters:

RIO’s Transcarioca Becomes Part of the Green Passport

RIO’s Transcarioca trail, a 180-kilometer path, offers adventure within the city limits.  To walk the entire path from Pão de Açúcar to Barra de Guaratiba would take 12 days, but there are shorter options among the 25 different stretches included in what is now the largest Latin American trail inside an urban area.
