Jards (90 min)
Houston Cinema Arts Festival
Eryck Rocha (presenting in person)
Born in 1943 in Rio de Janeiro, Jards Macalé is a composer, singer and actor known for his influential role in Brazil’s tropicália movement in the 1960s. Rocha inventively uses his camera as an instrument, riffing with the legendary musician as he records a new album. Through Rocha’s expert use of a variety of film techniques, we begin to understand the many ways we can see and hear a performer. The film’s invigorating approach celebrates Macalé’s process of creation offering a visual guide to the artist’s introspection, joy, pain, darkness and radiance. Jards won Best Director at the Rio IFF and was invited to be part of New Directors/ New Films in New York, as well as IndieLisboa and Mar del Plata IFF.
This event has a cover charge. For more information: http://houstoncinemaartsfestival.org/films/jards
