Screening of 'Limite' (Limit) + Book Launch

Limite ("limit" or "border") is a film by Brazilian director and writer Mário Peixoto , aged 21, in Protected content first screened in Protected content .

In a drifting small boat, two women and a man recalls their recent past. One of the women escaped from the prison; the other one was desperate; and the man had lost his lover. They have no further strength or desire to live and have reached the limit of their existences.

Cited by some as the greatest of all Brazilian films, this Protected content silent experimental feature by novelist and poet Peixoto, who never completed another film, was seen by Orson Welles and won the admiration of many, from Sergei Eisenstein, Martin Scorcesse to Georges Sadoul to Walter Salles. In Protected content was voted number 1 on the Abraccine Top Protected content filmslist.

In her new book Foundational Films: Early Cinema and Modernity in Brazil, Maite Conde introduces readers, for the first time, to the crucial early years of Brazilian film. Focusing on silent movies released during the First Republic ( Protected content ), the book explores how the medium became implicated in a larger project to transform Brazil into a modern nation state. Analysing an array of cinematic forms, from depictions of contemporary life, to ethnographic movies, to fan magazines, to experimental avant-garde productions including Mário Peixoto’s Limite, Conde demonstrates the distinct ways in which Brazil’s early film culture helped to project a new image of the country to its own spectators and those abroad.
