    Book synopsis: The Brazilian Road Movie explores some of the key trends and films in the development of the road movie in Brazil. A collection of essays by distinguished scholars, covering a broad range of case studies, this text spans Brazilian film production from the silent era to the present day. Contributors examine such issues as the reworking of the genre in a Brazilian context and the relationships between documentary and fiction; history, politics, and cinema; gender and race; the wilderness and the urban space; and the national and the transnational. As a whole, the volume sheds light on the significance of the journey and the experience of life on the road as represented in Brazilian cinema.
