Júlio Bressane (b. 1946)
Cinema Inocente (1980)
I made a chiasmus, an about-turn: innocent cinema is pornographic cinema. From there, using a passage of Pessoa's, I made a fictitious documentary. I was also auto-ironical, the editor treats me as though I were a film club member, he messes up my name, he tells stories I use as though they were real. But there is another aspect to the film, which is hidden in Pessoa's text, and that is exclusion. Not only official censorship, but an attitude that involves us all. Why can't a certain type of cinema be included in the history of cinema? So I made this about-turn: innocent cinema (Júlio. Bressane).
