Experiments in independence: Although Caetano Veloso is one of Brazil’s most important singers and songwriters his son, Moreno, refused to be intimidated, and even began writing his first songs at the age of ten. After successfully establishing his independence with musical experiments, including the trio with Alexandre Kassin and Domenico Lancellotti, he now writes erratically deconstructed Brazilian pop music and quirky songs that go straight to the heart—a talent which he has unabashedly inherited from his father.
Enricher of the New Wave: Marcos Valle belongs to the second generation of Brazilian Bossa Nova musicians following the pioneers João Gilberto and Antônio Carlos Jobim. During the course of his career extending over six decades the singer, guitarist, and pianist from Rio de Janeiro has continued to enrich this music, whether with modernist-intelligent Jazz, entrancing Boogie, or relaxed psychedelia. Most recently Valle’s sound, repeatedly rediscovered by younger generations, has become more electronic—and thus continues to be in tune with the pulse of the times.
D: Kleber Mendonça Filho, BRA/F 2016, 140 min, OV with English subtitles
The 65-year-old Clara lives in the Aquarius, an old apartment house on Recife’s city beach in Brazil. Real estate speculators threaten her home, all the other apartments have already been sold. Clara, played by the great Sonia Braga, takes up the fight against the unscrupulous company. As in Neighbouring Sounds (2012) Mendonça Filho has succeeded in creating a multilayered and highly topical drama about the dignity of the individual, social responsibility, and the politically legitimated greed for profit.
