Zé Celso, the director, was to become for me as a significant an artist as Glauber Rocha. Like Glauber he had an intense personal fire, but his knack for the finished product was something Glauber could not even dream of. His artistic confidence made it possible for him to let the spectator feel the space according to a profound poetics relating to the movement of bodies, the voices, the light.
