Mission / description Film and Literature – a passion more than perfect

To paraphrase Freud, behind every great movie is a great argument, and behind a big argument, most often, is a great book.
When Cinema was born in 1895, and had emerged as the Seventh Art, Literature (Sixth of Arts), already had long and rich history.
No wonder Cinema, characterized by it’s irreverence and ambitiousness, has turned to it’s older sister for inspiration, plots, stories and characters.
This almost umbilical connection runs through the history of cinema, as an almost perfect passion. But like all passions, there are moments of overwhelming intensity, sublime betrayals, mediocre or brilliant adaptations. Without the support of Literature, Cinema would perhaps be a hollow technique, an invention without a future. With inspiration in Literature, Cinema is a dream that is making millions of viewers worldwide dream, the great art of our time, a creative synthesis of all the arts. Recognizing the importance of Literature in Cinema, rather than diminishing it, will only magnify it.

visoramatv attended with Oscar Niemeyer - A luta é longa in 2005

4.0
/ 5

Produced during the last two years of Oscar Niemeyer’s life, the documentary “The fight is long” shows the history, habits and routine of a man after his 100 years. Two of his main partners, the chief architect of his office, Jair Valera, and Luiz Alberto Oliveira, physicist and Niemeyer’s teacher, contribute to the narrative as characters along with testimonials of awarded architects such as Paulo Mendes da Rocha, Frank Gehry and Richard Rogers. They reveal how important is the role of Oscar for the twentieth century. As support for this immersion, the graphic arts extrapolate the architectural concepts and structural under the prism of philosophy and cosmology, central themes for artistic search about the architect on his last chapters.
