Cinema for Portuguese Conversation is a textbook for intermediate and advanced students of Portuguese that uses film as the basis for teaching vocabulary, strengthening oral and written skills, and presenting Lusophone culture. The book is divided into five sections reflecting major themes in Brazilian, Portuguese, and Lusophone African cinema: the serto (backlands), urban violence, political transitions, women, and the mythological legend of Orpheus. The movies come from different cinematic periods from 1959 until 2003, and can be found easily on the Internet, in libraries, or in rental stores.
