Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Glauber de Andrade Rocha (March 14, 1939 - August 22, 1981) was an influential Brazilian film director, actor and writer. He is best known for his movie Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol (aka Black God, White Devil) from 1964. Rocha was born in Vit ria da Conquista, Bahia, Brazil and moved with his family to Salvador when he was only 9 years old, there studying in a famous and respected Presbyterian school. During his adolescence, he developed great interest in arts, especially theatre and cinema, and even joined a drama group. He was also very active in politics, a trait that would be strongly influential in his works. A member of the Brazilian radical left, he helped start a political party in the late 1980s that called for an anti-capitalist people's revolution and, among other things, advocated the abolition of money.show more
