'Orfeu Negro' Gets Blu-Ray treatment in August

The film that launched bossa nova around the world is coming to Blu-Ray, thanks to Criterion. Extras to include an interview with the director, the American star Marpessa Dawn, and contemporary author Ruy Castro -- who, I imagine, will describe how Vinicius de Moraes (author of the groundbreaking play on which the film was based) walked out of the premiere in Brazil.

More at Criterion's site.
