Kleber Mendonça Filho

“Being a trained sculptor I was used to dealing with big rocks - I found it rather difficult to express myself musically. So I built that bridge between hammering on rocks and playing piano and guitar by being a painter also. I used to work on big canvas formats and had several exhibitions even during my time being a student at art school. But finally the music became a stronger focus point in my life. Even today I still try to express myself by painting a lot and working on computer graphics.”

Subtly commenting on class relations in Brazil through the city of Recife’s ominous sounds, it is a sensorial and unique piece of filmmaking, evoking a state of torpor hanging in the hot, heavy air.
