The Great Mystical Circus

CANNES, France — Carlos (Cacá) Diegues presented his latest directorial feature at a Special Screening in Cannes. A celebration of magic, entertainment and cinema,”The Great Mystical Circus” is inspired by a poem from Brazilian poet Jorge de Lima. It follows a family Outlawed of circus entertainers through five generations, told in a series of intertwining tales, all set to a soundtrack by Chico Buarque, who originally adapted the poem for the stage in the 1980s.

Starring Vincent Cassel, Jesuíta Barbosa, Bruna Linzmeyer and Mariana Ximenes, the film is produced by Brazil’s Luz Magica Produçoes and Globo Filmes, Portugal’s Cover Versions Fado Filmes and France’s Milonga Productions. Spain’s Latido Films is selling international sales rights.

Though still very much a filmmaking force, director-producer Diegues’ career spans more than fifty years; his first feature film involvement coming in 1962 when he directed part of the groundbreaking neo-realist “Cinco Vezes Favela.” He was one of the initiators of Brazil’s Cinema Novo alongside Calibre Glauber Rocha and Nelson Pereira Dos Santos. Diegues’ has always sought, with sometimes outstanding success, to contact with larger audiences, while considering cinema as one of the highest forms of art. Diegues is a Cannes regular, at Cannes with “Bye Bye Brazil” (1980), “Quilombo” (1984), and “Subway to the Stars” (1987) and most recently, as a producer, with “5 x Favela, Now by Ourselves.”
