Critically acclaimed franco-brazillian documentary
"Saudade do Futuro" takes a fun and affectionate look at street musicians in Brazil, especially those practicing a kind of traditional rap poking fun at themselves, the audience and the sadness of life itself. Close to the practice of slaming and verbal joust relecting inner city life in on of the biggest cities in the world. "São Paulo and its street poets". To the rhythm and rhymes of musical improvised poetry, journalist or simple maid, art-gallery director or cab driver, the immigrants from the Northeast tell us the beat of the megalopolis.
"Saudade," so we're told, cannot be translated from its original Portuguese into any other language — it means something like sorrow combined with nostalgia.
And the musical documentary "Saudade do Futuro" looks at the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and its street musicians just this way, with a mixture of commiseration and fondness.
Wicked to look at, many laughs...a must for any music, brazil, documentary or serious film fan. The director was there, modest and intelligent... A beg,borrow and steal movie!
Sao Paulo appears to be one of those special cities — like New Orleans, Havana and, oh yes, New York — where the music is as thick in the air as the humidity.
And that's what "Saudade do Futuro" is about — not only the music of the streets but the music of life itself. Traffic noise, crowd noise, subway noise, factory noise, construction noise, restaurant noise, the sound of a woman singing while rhythmically doing laundry — the film deliberately intersperses these among the music to create a medley of daily life.
And this music is not necessarily the slinky sambas you might be expecting — it includes a number of wonderful surprises, particularly a brilliant traditional style called "Repente."
The sound of this music, with the steady beat of tambourines under the rhythmically shouting voices, is distinctly African inspired, but it will also remind Americans of rap music and the African-American streetcorner game of "the dozens," in which competitors trade good-natured insults to see whose are the cleverest. Onlookers gather around these singers and laugh at every outrageous line, especially when they become the subject themselves.
"Saudade do Futuro" also includes interviews about music and interviews with regular folks about daily life and what makes Sao Paulo special. It's a wistful romance about people who endure the hardships of life and a celebration of the ubiquitous staccato of sound that makes this city sizzle.
