Still: Filme de amor
Júlio BRESSANE (1946, Brazil) started his film career as assistant director to Walter Lima Jr. and directed his first feature film, Cara a cara, in 1967, becoming an important figure in Brazil’s Cinema Marginal. He founded the production company Belair Movies in 1970, together with Rogério Sganzerla, before moving to London in exile. Bressane’s poetic and essayistic work is among the most exemplary of Brazilian experimental film, concentrating especially on the relationship between picture and soundtrack. He received the Bastone Bianco Award for Dias de Nietzsche em Turin (2001) at the Venice Film Festival. In 2008, he received the honorary Eduardo Abelin Trophy at Gramado Film Festival. Educação sentimental (2013) premiered at Locarno Film Festival and was nominated for a Golden Leopard. Nietzsche Sils Maria Rochedo de Surlej had its world premiere at IFFR 2019.
