Conversations with Masters: Kleber Mendonça Filho

Conversations with Masters: Kleber Mendonça Filho



With only three feature films –Neighboring SoundsAquarius and Bacurau –, Brazilian director Mendonça Filho became one of the most modern –and, at the same time, classic– voices in Latin America. An activist from the best of the margins of film, his cinema not only reads and projects the society of his country but also speaks of the human condition from the reflection of the minimal and the everyday. Whether feeling the intimate heartbeat of his city or using genre cinema to make his mark, his is the meticulous work of an author, as can be seen in this conversation.
