the documentary and the word
Eduardo Coutinho (São Paulo, 1933 - Rio de Janeiro, 2014) is an essential name in Latin American documentary film. His work is shaped by political issues but manages to avoid demagogy, as he addresses the everyday lives and subjectivities of marginal majorities with a sensibility not altered by melodrama. He was interviewed on the occasion of the film and video series Eduardo Coutinho. Retrospective, held at Museo Reina Sofía between February and April 2013.
