The film is an intimate encounter with Frederico Morais, art critic and
creator of the Sundays of Creation, a series of events that shook up Rio de
Janeiro's Museum of Modern Art between January and July 1971. With
interviews with such artists as Cildo Meireles, Amir Haddad and Regina Casé,
the documentary recounts Frederico's trajectory from his arrival in Rio in
1965 to his fundamental role in organizing the Sundays of Creation, while
shedding light on his views on the relation between artists and critics.
Premieres at Rio International Film Festival 2011 and Mostra Internacional
de Cinema de São Paulo.

Guilherme Coelho was born in 1979 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. After
graduating in Economics, while also studying journalism and theater (and
being a lover of cinema), Guilherme directed his first feature-documentary,
Fala Tu, Lives of Rhyme (Berlin Film Festival 2004) - a blissful encounter
of filmmakers hungry for fulfilling experiences, and characters trying to
make a living through music, poetry and politics in Rio de Janeiro. Since
then, Guilherme has been involved in several projects at Matizar Filmes,
directing three other documentaries, two TV series and producing seven other
documentaries, including the latest two documentaries by Brazilian master
filmmaker Eduardo Coutinho. After ten-years in documentary, Guilherme is now
focused on learning and bringing to Matizar knowledge and methods for
developing scripts in fiction, and meanwhile he will continue to produce
documentaries directed by emerging and established talents.

*This is the U.S. premiere of A Sunday With Frederico Morais. There will be
a Q&A with the director (in English) following the screening.*
