The contributors to this proposed dossier are investigators on the AHRC-FAPESP funded Intermidia Project, which explores the uses and possible advantages of intermediality as a historiographic method applicable to cinema in general, and Brazilian cinema in particular. The choice of the artistic movement known as ‘Tropicália’ or ‘Tropicalism’ as the dossier’s common thread is due, in the first place, to its strong reliance on intermediality. This short-lived movement, stretching for a few years between the late 1960s and the early 1970s, unleashed a veritable artistic and political earthquake whose aftershocks can be felt up to today, as testified by the multiple celebrations of the movement’s 50th anniversary in 2017 taking place all over the world.
