  • Director's Statement

    I dived deep down into the period, giving priority, wherever possible, to those who actually photographed, filmed or recorded in 1967, 1968 and 1969. I’ve always had the impression that documentary making generates more material than is actually used. So I sought out interviews about Tropicalism made by other directors, looking for raw material that has never been seen. I put the best of this material together, chronologically, and picked out excerpts which I showed to tropicalistas themselves, who were willing to comment. Then I recorded what they had to say. In the spirit of cultural cannibalism, I ate it all up and am giving back this collage in which music is the primary interest and songs are the focus of attention. It is a film to sing-along to.”
