Gilberto Gil and Spike Lee

“Go Go Brazil” is a documentary about the country and its people and will feature a number of prominent social, political and cultural figures. Among these figures are some of the most well-known bossa nova artists  including Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso and Tom Ze.

With 2 big international events in the next few years, namely the World Cup and the Olympics, Lee saw this as an opportunity to capture the spirit of the country before the world focuses its eyes and camera’s on it.
