Saudade do Futuro
a film by MC & C. Paes




The rhythms and rhymes of the ‘cantadores’, those street singers
from Northeastern Brazil, tell us the beat of São Paulo, one of five biggest towns in the world.


“Paes frames indelible images of the city and its inhabitants around performances by these heartbreaking, hilarious, and sometimes raunchy troubadours.“                   
THE VANCOUVER COURIER
 
“An impressionistic hymn to both São Paulo and one unique regional music form, Cesar Paes’ «Saudade do Futuro» is an infectious delight.“
Dennis Harvey / VARIETY
 
“a summer delight”
the NY POST
 
“a musical and cinematic treasure”
Maria Garcia / FILM JOURNAL INTERNATIONAL
