Saw #MyHomeIsCopacabana. A kid-populated version of Malcolm Lowry’s Under the Volcano: extremity, diminishing hope …

… and the degradation of poverty, in the midst of all this paradisiacal beauty. As Paul said, “having no hope, & without God in the world …”

#MyHomeIsCopacabana. Who knew that Sweden’s greatest nature filmmaker shot a semi-improvised, Flaherty-like half documentary, …

… and in Rio de Janeiro to boot?! Amazing! Meanwhile, Man of Steel was playing on 5 screens at the multiplex down the street.

#MyHomeIsCopacabana. Sucksdorff’s small-crew camera operating is, along w’ that of Michel Brault, about the greatest ever.
