Miramar (1997)

Júlio Bressane, 82min, Digital
In Portuguese with English Subtitles

 

Director Júlio Bressane—a key figure in the radical Cinema Marginal movement during the late ’60s—offers a loose take on modernist writer Oswald de Andrade’s 1924 bildungsroman, Sentimental Memories of João Miramar. It tells the story of a young man in Rio de Janeiro who takes up a 16mm camera after his parents die, determined to film anything that moves in an impossible quest to capture the world as it is. While the young cinephile sifts through the influences of Eisenstein, Jean Cocteau, and Hollywood alongside classics of Brazilian and Portuguese literature, Bressane crafts a boundary-pushing, free-flowing film that’s wholly unique. US premiere!
