Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. M rio Rodrigues Breves Peixoto (1908 - 1992) was mainly known for his first and only film Limite, a silent experimental film filmed in 1930 and premiered in Rio de Janeiro on 17 May 1931. Peixoto wrote, directed and took up a minor role in the film. Its musical score include Eric Satie, Claude Debussy, Alexander Borodin, Igor Stravinsky, Sergei Prokofiev and C sar Franck. The single-handedly achievement of a member of the well-to-do lite of 1920s Brazil, Limite became over the years almost a myth - its only copy being almost lost during the 1950s, were it not to be restored thanks to the personal efforts of two 1970s critics - and the object of various legends, many of them put into circulation by Peixoto himself.show more
