already taken 5 pm”, Directed by Eduardo Nunez, one of the projects of the label Bando à Parte, produced by Areias, who is also a director. His background behind the camera includes productions such as straw road”, Western Laureate of the Ecumenical Jury at the Karlovy Vary Festival in 2012 and “blue breath”, released in Brazil in 2020.

There is always a strong human value in the feature films of Areias, who shares with us his impressions of the current Brazilian reality.

What has this season in Mostra de São Paulo, in the midst of presidential elections, revealed to you about Brazil and what partnerships have you forged here?

Well, having been here exactly 4 years ago, and although I returned after that fateful moment, this trip of mine is full of hope. First of all, this is what I think about Brazil… Brazil, which is full of hope for the future, and it is very beautiful. People are dreaming about the future again, as if they are coming out of a dark and dense era. In that sense, I think there will be many possible partnerships. I believe that in the first stage it is necessary to help, and being here not only as a judge at Mostra de SP, but also at the Encontro de Ideaias event, several projects aroused my curiosity in order to eventually be able to participate in their production. But, at the moment, we are in the process of assembling”17:00”, a new feature film by Eduardo Nunez, a director whom I have great respect and friendship with.

How do you assess the current economic situation of film production in Portugal? Is there an audience? What is this audience?

Well, there is a significant difference between the economic situation and the population for us. In terms of production, it has never been so good. Never before has there been so much funding and such a democratic and diverse type of film being produced. As for the public, everything is more complicated here, since the pandemic will destabilize everything for a while. Things are very difficult in the theater, except for one or two films a year, around which the audience is concentrated, usually these are popular comedies … and here it is a completely different economic exploitation, with streamers, new TV channels, etc. .

Thinking about Objects de Luz, what was the most valuable lesson that photographer Acasio de Almeida (the film’s co-director) gave you as a lesson in life and cinema?

I have worked with Akazio before. In fact, he is the only actor in my short film.Movie”, and at that time Akashio told stories to the delight of the whole team. When light objectsI think your search is very sincere, very honest, and the film reflects that. There is even a kind of charm in the universe, which is very beautiful. I think he looks at life with that infectious charm.

What other interesting storylines did you find at the Sao Paulo festival?

There are many good films in the Mostra competition. The jury considers only the 12 films that received the most votes from the public, which at first glance may seem more commercial, but they are not. I have found that the majority of the audience’s preference is for films about violent trauma, about childhood trauma and trying to overcome it. I think this is an unconscious portrait of the moment that Brazil experienced last week. I think if it were this week, the audience choice would be much more encouraging.
