Trivia

The film was banned for years by Glauber's family, since it includes scenes of Glauber's funeral. While alive, Glauber was victim of the same problem: his short Di Cavalcanti (1977) was forbidden by Di Cavalcanti's family because of the shots at Di's funeral. See more »

The geniality of a great director
16 July 2014 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The great deal about this documentary on filmmaker Glauber Rocha is the amount of rarely seen images and footage from Glauber's films, personal material, news coverages on events (like the film festival where Rocha complained about losing the award of Best Film for his final movie "A Idade Da Terra" to Malle's "Atlantic City") and the most interesting clips, the one of his funeral, strangely blocked by the director's family for many years, a hypocritical (yet understandable) act considering that Glauber filmed an unauthorized documentary on painter Di Cavalcanti's funeral.

Other than that, the movie contains good interviews with friends and acquaintances, who share good stories of his creative process, his mannerisms and also intriguing accounts that reveals Glauber as someone out of this world, just like his movies. One topic that was interesting and very provoking was an alleged friendship between him and general João Figueiredo, later president of Brazil - maybe not exactly friendship but a certain sense of admiration. Rocha, though very leftist and opposed to the military regime, was seen by Figueiredo as someone who made great cinema, in his words, "macho movies" and that's the reason that during his time as a censor when everyone was nervous about the filmmaker, the general didn't complained much when Rocha's films "Black God, White Devil" and "Terra Em Transe" were submitted to world festivals.

For what I can remember, this was a good documentary, right on the target, I have good memories from it though quite chaotic and random in his presentation. A complete biography on the man is very needed, a genius of his stature is worthy of a great movie. 8/10
