In 1942 Johann, a young German, drives his truck along the desert roads of North-East Brazil, carrying two strange products inside: large amounts of aspirin, an unknown medicine as a pain reliever in those parts, and a film projector to fuel the dreams of the audience. An unusual road movie that was presented last year in the Films in Progress section and shown with great success in the "Un certain regard" section at the latest Cannes Film Festival.
BIOGRAPHY
Born in Recife, Marcelo Gomes studied Journalism, specialising in TV. In 1991, thanks to a scholarship from the British Council, he followed post-graduate studies in cinema at Bristol University. On returning to Brazil he produced several videos, writing and directing the shorts Maracatu, maracatus and Clandestina felicidade. Both received awards for screenplay, directing and best film at national and international festivals. Cinema, aspirina e urubus, his first feature film, was selected last year for Films in Progress 6.
