Rating:No Rating
Release Date:January 1, 2003
Running time:100 minutes
Director:Silvio Tendler

Description: Filmmaker Glauber Rocha was one of the leading lights of Brazil's Cinema Novo movement in the '60s and was well known to Brazilians as a creative iconoclast with an outsized personality. Unafraid to voice his opinions either through his art or in the press, Rocha eventually fled the country rather than submit to the controls of the military dictatorship which had overtaken Brazil. His death in 1981 (and the emotional public funeral which followed) confirmed his status as a rebellious hero in the eyes of his countrymen. Glauber o Filme, Labririnto Do Brasil is a documentary about Rocha's life, which concerns itself less with his cinematic legacy than the man behind the art, featuring interviews with Rocha and his friends and associates, as well as newsreel footage of his more memorable public appearances. Director Silvio Tendler began work on Glauber o Filme, Labririnto do Brasil in 1982, but the film was not completed nor screened in public until 2004, in part because Rocha's family initially objected to using interviews conducted at the filmmaker's wake.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
