Nelson Pereira dos Santos

Director

“As I have said race is a theme that because of my upbringing is incorporated into my existence. The other great issue, poverty, which is very linked to race, is a permanent theme in all my films; it's not possible to think about national identity without including the very serious problem of absolute poverty in some parts of Brazil.”
