Exhibition at Cinemateca Brasileira, in SP, highlights first-time filmmakers

Starting this Thursday (21), the Cinemateca Brasileira, in São Paulo, will present the Meu Primeiro Feature Film Show. There are 14 feature-length films by filmmakers debuting between 2020 and 2022. The idea arises from the perception that emerging directors did not have the proper visibility to the public and that exhibition spaces were reduced because of the covid-19 pandemic.
