Materia_de_Composicao_03

A documentary about the creation process of the contemporaneous musical songwriting in relation to cinema. The same video-essay was given to three songwriters – Guilherme Antônio Ferreira, Teodomiro Goulart and Oiliam Lanna, and we ordered a musical piece that would dialogue with the video. Two years later, after following the whole process, from songwriting to rehearsals, concert, recording and mixing the songs, we ended up with this film.

SCREENING: NOVEMBER 27 – WEDNESDAY – 19h
