Eder Santos (b. 1960) currently lives and works in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. In 1962, Brazilian film director Glauber Rocha released “Barravento”, which he wrote and directed to “suggest that only violence will help those who are sorely oppressed." The political message of basic income inequality and faith as developed in “Barravento” still finds resonance throughout the world today. Brazilian multimedia pioneer Eder Santos created “Barravento NOVO”, 2-channel video mapping installation in which original images of Glauber’s film juxtapose with new clips produced by the artist. As such a dialogue is established between two historical moments that in the eyes of the spectator connect both by similarities and differences.
