Brazilian director João Moreira Salles will be appearing at the opening night screening of IN THE INTENSE NOW on Friday, February 9 at 7:30 p.m. for a Q+A with the audience. Presented by the Norman A. Geske Cinema Showcase which is funded by The Friends of The Ross.
In the Intense Now draws from the visual archive of the global 1968 revolutions in four countries—France, Czechoslovakia, China, and Brazil—to examine what is captured and what is lost in images of great historical intensity.
In the Intense Now explores the revolutions of 1968 as they unfolded across four different countries and their political environments: France, Czechoslovakia, China, and Brazil. Narrated in first person by the director, the film reflects on that which is revealed by footage of the French students’ uprising in May of 1968; the images captured by amateurs during the invasion of Czechoslovakia in August of the same year, when forces led by the Soviet Union put an end to the Prague Spring; the scenes that a tourist —the director’s mother —filmed in China in 1966, the year of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution; and footage from Salles’ own childhood in Brazil, during the establishment and rule of a repressive military dictatorship.
