OT: Últimas Conversas

Eduardo Coutinho // Brazil, 2015
Documentary Feature // FF2016



Documentary Shortly before his death, Eduardo Coutinho, grand old man of theBrazilian documentary, conducts a series of interviews with young Brazilians. Heasks simple questions – about their parents and friends, how it’s going atschool – and gets disarmingly honest and in part disturbing answers. Theteenagers talk about growing up in disfunctional families, bullying at school andtheir fears. The film however also shows the magic of being young: one girlsings Roxette’s Listen To Your Heart,another writes poetry, a seven-year old imagines what the world was like beforeshe was born. Last Conversations isan enchantingly intelligent, warm-hearted portrait of a generation and the legacyof maybe the best listener in the history of film.
