The Death of J.P. Cuenca


Country: Brazil
Year: 2015
Duration: 90'
Direction: João Paulo Cuenca

Sinopsis

Is it possible to write an autobiography including one’s own death? This is the game that the Brazilian writer and filmmaker, João Paulo Cuenca, proposes. A game into which he was forced to play when he received the surprising news of the death of his own identity in 2008. Here, the resurrection works the other way round: someone steals the name of a living person to die for him, but who is that someone? Cuenca throws himself into a police search in which he plays the detective of himself. Strange calls, false clues and a mysterious woman who appears and disappears. The fiction and the thriller are served on a tray of reality. If one writes the script of one’s own life, he/she inevitably ends up starring in it. Even in the death.
