Punto de Vista 2021 Winners
Punto de Vista 2013 will present a brief retrospective of the film-maker Eduardo Coutinho, acknowledged as the greatest Brazilian documentary film-maker of the last three decades since, in 1985, he recovered an unfinished project from the previous decade, which would eventually become Cabra marcado para morrer, one of the key titles in Brazilian and Latin American filmography.
Born in 1933, Coutinho began his film career in his 50s. Coutinho, throughout his career has turned his cinematographic work into the voice of Brazil. His films are open spaces, offered with the consensus of their protagonists, where the film-maker looks, observes and portrays a vital country caught up in a process of change. Films that do not merely look and offer a space for their protagonists' voices to be heard, but which also become true human landscapes in a country where the imaginary is just as if not more important than reality.
