INTERVIEW: BRUNO BARRETO ON 'REACHING FOR THE MOON'

Monday, November 11, 2013 , Posted by LATINO EVENTS Y TESPIS MAGAZINE at 3:50 PM

Brazilian director Bruno Barreto was in NYC to promote Reaching For The Moon, his latest film. The movie tells the love story of two amazing and talented women: Pulitzer Prize winner poet Elizabeth Bishop and Lota de Macedo Soares, a brazilian architect responsible for the world's famous Flamingo Park.


Set mostly around Rio de Janeiro and NYC during the 1950's and 1960s, Reaching For The Moon is also a story of losing, of search and of redemption of a sort. How lives come together, interconnect, and pull apart no matter how much love there is in between. Or maybe precisely because of it. As the movie starts we see Elizabeth Bishop reading her latest attempt at poetry: 'The art or losing is not hard to master'... By the end of it, the poem continues to its end: 'even You'.... The Art of Losing is not hard to master'....indeed. Even if it takes us a long time to do it. Is just part of the fabric of life, of love and it is what draws Mr. Barreto to making movies: the investigation of human behavior. 
Bruno Barreto explores it beautifully in Reaching For The Moon. The movie is out in selected theaters. Watch the interview below, or follow the link > TespisTV
