Series - 1968: Expressions of a Flame

João Moreira Salless In the Intense Now spans China, Brazil, Paris, and Prague in a searing post-mortem of 1968 as an offering to our own intense present. The film starts with images and notes made by Salless mother during a French art magazine-funded trip to China during the Cultural Revolution. This trip, and Salless speculation about what effects it may have made on his mothers consciousness, is woven into a narrative focusing extensively on the 1968 uprisings in Paris and Prague constructed from amateur footage. The film probes the radical commitment to generate a new state of things in a multi-polar narrative about a world constantly coming into being. Salles is a curious tour guide for this incisive historical study, as a billionaire son of one of Brazils oldest banking families, yet his ability to think in images and write his own story into the narrative makes it an exceptionally honest and insightful film.

Find solace, enlightenment and surprise in João Moreira Salless In the Intense Now, a bittersweet, ruminative documentary essay.  A. O. Scott, The New York Times
