Storyline

Glauber Rocha films the funeral of his friend Di Cavalcanti, one of the most important Brazilian painters and artists of all time. The director/writer pays his tribute to Di by narrating an eloquent speech, referencing poets such as Augusto dos Anjos e Vinicius de Moraes, along with images of Cavalcanti's work and the funeral as well - with the latter event being a spur of the moment to the director who rushed with his camera to the place when he heard the news. Written by Rodrigo Amaro

Another short cut from this master of brazilian cinema
2 April 2000 | by danielpoeiraSee all my reviews

This is a very rare movie, but the story is very spread among brazilian cinema people. When brazilian art master Di Cavalcanti died, Glauber Rocha went to his funeral... with a camera. The short movie shows Cavalcanti`s corpse in the coffin, the funeral, and his family yelling at Rocha to get out of there with that camera, while in the background we hear Jorge Ben singing "Umbabarauma, homem gol", a famous samba-funk song about a famous brazilian soccer player. The guts make the myth.
