Read the book, watch the movie, get the zine and fall in love with Clarice Lispector, the Ukrainian-born Brazilian novelist who is considered the most important Jewish writer in the world since Kafka. Cactus Club’s Moving Image and Lion’s Tooth present a screening of the 1986 film Hour of the Star, based on Lispector’s final book and directed by Suzana Amaral. Lion’s Tooth will also be launching the zine Clarice

A work of Brazilian cinema, The Hour of the Star (1985), (A hora da estrela) is a film adaptation of a novel by Clarice Lispector of the same name published in 1977, shortly before the author’s death. The Hour of the Star deals with the problems of the rural Northeast versus the urban Southeast of Brazil, poverty and the dream of a better life, and, of an uneducated woman’s struggle to survive in a sexist society.

Lion’s Tooth will release a zine about Clarice Lispector for the screening!
