Brazilian Epic XINGU Available on DVD 9/9

Breaking Glass Pictures will be releasing the Brazilian epic Xingu on DVD September 9, 2014. Based on the true story of the Vilas-Bôas brothers' journey through Xingu and their time among the indigenous people, Xingu premiered to critical acclaim at the Berlin International Film Festival.

During their exploration of central Brazil in 1943, Orlando, Claudio and Leonardo Villas-Bôas encounter the Xingu Indians. Passionately interested by what they discover about the customs and social systems of the cultures they discover, the brothers make a home among them. When half of a village dies of an influenza epidemic, the brothers devote their lives to protecting the Xingu peoples, preserving Xingu culture and to the creation of a Xingu National Park.

By retelling the brothers' saga, Xingu reveals the struggle to create the Indian park and consequent preservation of an array of different Indian tribes, transforming the Villas-Boas into Brazilian heroes and giving rise to dialogues revolving around chronic problems in Brazil's history.
