"The drawing universe is a universe of freedom" says artist and university professor Paolo PT Barreto in the latest in a series of films from Brazil.
Watch his inspiring story of how he perceives art. His philosophy is that it's not important to be good at drawing or not, it is that you keep on wanting to make the next image. Although he has restricted movement and works from a wheelchair, Paulo has never let this obstruct his passion to paint and draw and teach others.
Âmbito de Liberdade was directed by Pedro Barbosa and Mariana Martins, and hand-picked as a winning entry by City Of God director Fernando Meirelles, in a series of brand new films supported by Johnnie Walker called The Walkers.
Meirelles chose the winning entries for the six short-feature films produced via crowdsourcing:
“As a filmmaker, I have always been moved by the Keep Walking spirit; after all, it was not easy to produce a movie in Brazil. The boldness of giving the brand’s voice to independent producers had me right away,” says the director, who was excited to see the progress of Brazil and real-life Brazilians, such as community dwellers, natives and street artists, portrayed on the big screen.
Watch this space for the fourth film in the series of six.
