IN THE INTENSE NOW

by João Moreira Salles

IN THE INTENSE NOW draws from the visual archive of the global 1968 revolutions in four countries—France, Czechoslovakia, China, and Brazil—to examine what is captured and what is lost in images of great historical intensity.

Synopsis

Brazilian director João Moreira Salles will be appearing at the opening night screening of IN THE INTENSE NOW on Friday, February 9 at 7:30 p.m. for a Q+A with the audience. Presented by the Norman A. Geske Cinema Showcase which is funded by The Friends of The Ross.

The Ross will be the first theatre in the country to show IN THE INTENSE NOW and to host a discussion about the film with the director, following its US premiere at Film Forum in NYC.

In the Intense Now draws from the visual archive of the global 1968 revolutions in four countries—France, Czechoslovakia, China, and Brazil—to examine what is captured and what is lost in images of great historical intensity. Narrated in first person by the director, the film reflects on that which is revealed by footage of the French students’ uprising in May of 1968; the images captured by amateurs during the invasion of Czechoslovakia in August of the same year, when forces led by the Soviet Union put an end to the Prague Spring; the scenes that a tourist —the director’s mother —filmed in China in 1966, the year of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution; and footage from Salles’ own childhood in Brazil, during the establishment and rule of a repressive military dictatorship.
