Exchanging Words with Eduardo Coutinho

The film by Josafá Veloso opens with images from Últimas Conversas. Edited and completed posthumously, it would be Eduardo Coutinho’s last film. Banquete Coutinho feeds on what the director said during an interview where he shared ideas and memories on film making, one of which is the troubled origin of the film Cabra Marcado para morrer, the result of footage for another project initiated 17 years before and halted by the 1964 military coup.

Heart Beat presents a special screening, intersecting even more deeply film and music. First, we’ll have the film Mistérios Negros, by Pedro Lino, with live music by composer Philippe Lenzini. Then follows the documentary cinematic performance O Intendente é um Lugar Psicológico, with Tiago Pereira and Sílvio Rosado combining images and music live, and portraying out of memories a neighbourhood that still resists.
