*The Brazil Studies Program at Harvard's David Rockefeller Center for 
Latin American Studies would like to inform you of the following 
upcoming Brazil related events at Harvard*

Brazil Film Series*


Directed by João Moreira Salles

In 1992, filmmaker João Moreira Salles began making a film about 
Santiago, the family butler who worked for Salles's parents since his 
childhood.  Years later, after the death of the flamboyant servant, 
Salles returns to the unused footage and crafts a moving portrait of an 
enigmatic man who, aside from running the household, is a talented 
pianist, a poet and an amateur historian interested in the lives of 
aristocrats. The film is an evocative reflection on the components of a 
person's identity and those traits that make us memorable to others.  
Through his personal voice-over, Salles sheds light on his family and 
childhood as well as universal topics such as memory, identity, and 
documentary filmmaking.
