Film Presentation:
Ratacirile subterane ale unui student brazilian, care nu mai e chiar tanar si care, nestiind ce sa caute in viata, coboara in metroul parizian pentru a-i cunoaste pe cei pe care ii pretuieste cel mai mult... strainii. Timp de doi ani, cu o camera de filmat dupa el, a observat si a interactionat cu tot felul de „locuitori” ai metroului: pasageri, oameni care pun afise, persoane fara adapost, muzicieni, conductori de metrou, conversand adesea despre asteptarile lor de la viata. Rezultatul este un film care dezvaluie lumea eclectica a metroului dintr-un punct de vedere neobisnuit, glumet si personal.
Director's Bio-Filmography:
Born in Sao Paulo in 1980, Guilherme Hoffmann studied graphic design at the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil, followed by a Masters at the School of Fine Arts in Sao Paulo, where he made two short experimental films: "Carpe Diem"(2006) and "País Tropical" (2007). Centered in performances created by Guilherme himself in the streets of Sao Paulo, these films triggered his interest on something quite simple: interacting with strangers in unusual situations. In 2008 he moved to Paris to do a master's degree in documentary filmmaking at the University Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint-Denis - which the final project is the film "Metro". During the two years of shooting, Guilherme developed in parallel an audiovisual workshop with children in a sociocultural center in the Paris suburbs.
