2016 | DOC | 113’

FPitanga investigates the aesthetical, political and existential journey of the actor Antonio Pitanga that, directed by iconic filmmakers - such as Glauber Rocha, Cacá Diegues and Walter Lima Jr. - was highlighted at the time of the worldwide acknowledged Brazilian 1960’s movement Cinema Novo. Performing in more than 60 films, Pitanga intervened in the reality of an effervescent world, when man replaced himself in society with an active and pollitically engaged attitude. This is the artist, Pitanga intends to honor. The importance of his testimony is given in the construction of this man's architecture in deep dialogue with his time.
