This montage film evokes the atmosphere around the Inventive Cinema movement and its underground roots. It’s made up of period, primarily private footage and film excerpts. With only a minimum of commentary, it lets us observe the primary figures of a generation of filmmakers who gave the domestic film scene a whole new direction.


Helena Ignez (1942) is an actress who features in a number of important period films of the Inventive Cinema. She worked on her experimental debut Terasa (Terrace) with her first husband, Glauber Rocha. She has also made a number of short films.
