MoMA Film will host Premiere Brazil!, its second annual presentation of contemporary Brazilian cinema.

Eleven-film series will unspool June 23-29 at Film Forum and include the world preem of Joel Zito Araujo’s “Daughters of the Wind.”

Araujo’s feature debut about redemption between sisters, mothers and daughters features the largest cast of black actors ever used in a Brazilian film.

Other series highlights include the New York preem of “God Is Brazilian,” a comedy by Carlos Diegues, one of the founders of Brazil’s Cinema Novo movement, and the U.S. preem of Eliane Caffe’s fable “The Storytellers.”

Lima Barreto’s “The Bandit,” which won the Prix Intl. at the 1953 Cannes Film Festival will conclude the run.

Along with Robert Berliner’s doc “Born to Be Blind,” about three blind sisters who sing on the streets, “Daughters of the Wind” will have a subsequent weeklong engagement at Film Forum.
