Lamartine Babo created some of the biggest all-time carnival hits. Oswald De Andrade revolutionized Brazilian literature. Joao Do Rio was a prolific journalist. This “what if” film gives Bressane the chance to portray an imaginary encounter between the three that, in his own words, “suggest a mixture of elements, of signs, erudite and popular, which will later be formulated by Oswald in his writings, and Lamartine in his songs, signs of Brazilian culture, tropical and anthropophagic”.
