Eryk Rocha, 2012
Brazil | Portuguese with English subtitles | Format: DCP | 93 minutes

North American Premiere! Director Eryk Rocha and Actor Jards Macalé in person at all screenings!

SPECIAL OFFER: Two tickets for the price of one!

The celebrated composer and musician Jards Macalé is in the recording studio where director Eryk Rocha captures him in a wide variety of poses and states of creating, imaginatively varying style and shooting formats. Fashioning an intimately attuned portrait of an artist, Rocha uses his camera as an instrument to riff with Jards in a poetic exchange between images and music. The repetitive, time-stopping process of rehearsal and the flow of energy between the two art forms create an elegiac vision of the creativity of some of Brazil’s most beloved singers and musicians. Travel support provided by Itaú Cultural.
