Screening of Brazilian film 'O Homen que Desafiou o Diabo' (2007), directed by Moacyr Goes.
Adaptation of the novel As Pelejas de Ojuara by Nei Leandro de Castro. The film is set in the mythical and fantastical Northeast of Brazil. Ze Araujo, a traveling salesman, dominated by his wife, and exploited by his father-in-law, rebels against this life and becomes the legendary Ojuara, a local hero who turned the Northeast upside down. As a genuine Brazilian lonesome cowboy with a strong sense of justice, Ojuara lives through the most hilarious and unexpected adventures involving many women, drinking-fests, and a peculiar encounter with the Devil.
