Brazilian drumming will introduce a four-day season of new documentary films from Brazil at the New Zealand Film Archive tonight. The season is titled Reel Brazil.

The popular Wellington Batucada drumming group will be performing from 6.15, and there’ll be complimentary caipirinhas before the first screening at 7pm – Empress of Carnaval.

Then on Thursday, Friday and Saturday there’ll be two or three sessions each day, followed by a fund-raising screening for the drummers.
