FOREIGN LAND and LIFE SOMEWHERE ELSE, the two new films added to the tribute of our juryman WALTER SALLES

Back
Born in 1956, in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, Walter Salles is a director of documentary and fiction and his work surrounds topics like travel and the search for identity.

 "I come from a country and also a continent whose identity is in the making. We're a very young culture, and I think that things are not yet crystallised. So the films that are made in our latitudes, I think, carry that sense of urgency. It's as if the people that you meet on the street and the stories that they bring can influence you directly."   

His filmography is, in fact, a reflection of his journey through the discovery of these topics.
