This chapter examines how neorealist techniques consciously employed by the Paraíban documentary school of the Brazilian Northeast served as a building block to construct a particular kind not only of Brazilian cinema but also of Brazilian identity. It recovers the story of this little-known movement that played a significant role in fostering the more famous fiction films of Brazil’s Cinema Novo.

Keywords:   neoralism, Brazilian cinema, Brazilian identity, Cinema Novo
