Cast & Crew
An artist who gave Brazilian Cinema its own identity, Rocha was born in the state of Bahia, was a film critic, journalist, and an effervescent, provocative and controversial thinker. His wake, held at the Lage Park in Rio de Janeiro, was attended by myriad Brazilian intellectuals. Those that accompanied, admired and fought beside this mythical figure of Brazilian cinema recount yet another page in the filmmaker's history, a history which remained in a drawer for eighteen years, and now emerges as a tribute to this revolutionary, but solitary, artist.
Shown at the Cannes Film Festival, May 15-23, 2004.
