Cao Guimarães’ Eye for the Everyday

Cao Guimarães’ work is marked by great beauty and meticulous attention to everyday details. Dana Linssen (NRC, Filmkrant) talks with University of Amsterdam professor and cultural anthropologist Mattijs van de Port about the aesthetic gaze of the Brazilian filmmaker/artist. Van de Port has been involved in long-running research in Brazil, where he also made several films. He is 'determined to restore interest in beauty in academic research’.
