Brazil is the 6th largest film market in the world.
    Still, to be a filmmaker in Brazil today is a heroic adventure. By 1990 the share of
    domestic movies in the country’s box-office total had fallen to zero with no more than
    five films being produced each year. This after a golden period in the ’70s and ’80s, when
    Brazilian films were selling up to 50% of all tickets and filmmakers were cranking up 100
    new films a year. Finally the national film industry seems to be going through a revival.
    The share has grown to 5% and several international prizes are giving new momentum to an
    industry that in almost 100 years has more than 2,000 films to show for.
