Storyline

In his film Rua Aperana 52 Júlio Bressane describes the invention of a landscape, the topology of a corner of Rio de Janeiro. The film consists of a series of photographs taken between 1909 and 1955 by, among others, Bressane's parents at and around the address used as a title. These are interlarded with scenes from films made between 1957 and 2005, bringing the total fictional time the film covers to almost a century; one hundred years in which the winding road featured in almost every shot structures the new landscape behind the Aperana, which means 'wrong road'. Rua Aperana 52 is autobiographical, as it is a landscape from Bressane's youth, but it is also not so; it is more a multi-subjective mythology of a place seen through all those films and photographs. Bressane refers to his editing as an intuitive form of thinking aimed at evoking moods which make the viewer the new witness of the fictional landscape. A fiction about a fiction.

Trivia

Several U.S. Citizens over the years made Rua Aperana home. The top of Rua Aperana used to host some of the best "carrinho de rolima" (mini wooden go carts using wheel bearings for wheels) races in Rio. Also, former Brazilian President Dutra lived on the street. His mansion, like all of the beautiful houses on the street, was bulldozed to make way for towering condos. See more »
