LENINE IN CONTINUATION / LENINE EM CONTINUAÇÃO
(ígor Iglesias González, Spain, 2009, 90 min. In Spanish and Portuguese with English subtitles)
Screening introduced by Brazilian journalist Eduardo Graça
"While working on a new album, Brazilian composer Lenine calls upon his earliest experiences with music to navigate the uncertainty brought to his work in the era of downloads (and vinyl). Lenine in Continuation documents perspectives, encounters, creation and how technology serves a passion for art. Lenine was born in 1958 and in the '90s, almost 10 years into his career, became one of the greatest names in Brazilian music. Despite his late success, he has since garnered outstanding reviews, awards and fans with each new album. The film offers an intense reflection on the impact of new technology on musical creation in the midst of the decline of the CD, the reemergence of vinyl and the explosion of the internet." — Rio International Film Festival.
