Private Project

ANTENA DA RAÇA ( RACE ANTENNA )


The film comes to appropriate and re-discuss the Brazilian reality, based on the dialogues, excerpts and scenes from Glauber Rocha visceral films and his desire to "remove the masks", from ou third world saga. In this scenario where love and violence coexist in a state of inequality and often abandonment.
The language of the film dialogues with the style of the program ABERTURA showned in 1979 on Brazilian TV , during the end of the military dictatorship. Today, forty years later, our fragile democracy is once again at risk and, unfortunately Glauber's words are still very much alive, and the backdrop of his characters are the Brazilian people with their political and social contradictions. We aspired to bring forth the creative energy of Glauber, his nonconformist behaviour and desire to interfere in the Brazilian reality.
