Win a copy of Black Orpheus on Criterion Collection Blu-ray plus the soundtrack on CD!

Winner of both the Academy Award for best foreign-language film and the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or, MARCEL CAMUS’ Black Orpheus (Orfeu negro) brings the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice to the twentieth-century madness of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. With its eye-popping photography and ravishing, epochal soundtrack, Black Orpheus was a cultural event, kicking off the bossa nova craze that set hi-fis across America spinning.
