André Di Mauro
A tribute to Humberto Mauro (1897-1983), a pioneer of the Brazilian and Latin American cinema. An interview with the honoree, recorded at the Museum of Image and Sound in the 60s, acts as the guiding thread for the film, which revisits his life through his cinematographic production. The production highlights the unusual technical solutions adopted by Mauro during shoots and his struggle against adversities that were inherent to the pioneerism of a filmmaker in Brazil in the early 20th century, in a small town in the interior.
