  • Pixote in Memoriam

    2005. Brazil. Directed by Felipe Brisso, Gilberto Topczewski. Revisiting Pixote and the people involved in the classic film, this documentary offers compelling insight into the lives, then and now, of Fernando Ramos da Silva's fellow actors, and perhaps also an understanding of da Silva's tragic destiny, which bore an uncanny resemblance to that of his fictional character. Interviews with Nick Cave, Julian Schnabel, and Spike Lee examine the pervasive influence of the movie, and Hector Babenco discusses his relationship with the young kids whose lives were all changed by his film's success. Portuguese; English subtitles. 78 min.
