Cinema with Talka with Cesar Oiticica
“Helio Oiticica was one of the artists that most united reflection with artistic creation. His ideas and propositions, expressed not only in texts but also in statements and interviews, revolutionized art and culture, transforming him into one of the most important artists of the second half of the twentieth century. The documentary by Cesar Oiticica Filho, by using the voice of the artist as a narrative thread, permits a unique immersion into the thought and intimacy of Helio Oiticica.
The extensive image research makes the spectator accompany the evolution of the artist, the initial connection with the Grupo Frente, then the surge of Neoconcretism, the creation of the Bolides, Penetraveis, Nucleos, and Parangoles, next the involvement with Tropicalia, expanding into the New York period, until the return to Brazil.
It is a document, not solely about one of the greatest artists that Brazil has yet produced but also about only about one of the periods of greatest effervescence of our culture, which means that this film is crucial to an understanding of not only our culture but what we are today.
Helio Oiticica is a 94 minute documentary, directed by Cesar Oiticica Filho and produced by Guerrilha Films.
