Monumento Doc . DCP . B&W . 10' . 2012

The Bandeira Monument is a public sculpture present in thousands of São Paulo citizens' everyday lives and one of the city’s most representative symbols.


Despite its magnificent structure and privileged location, the work is only superficially known. Inattentive observation of this urban mark contrasts with its artistic and historical importance.


Launched in 1953, on the eve of São Paulo City’s 4th Centenary, the monument was sculpted by one of Brazilian Modernist Movement’s most important artists, Victor Brecheret.


The sculpture was developed in a span of 30 years since its first sketch and it’s the artist’s greatest work and most important artistic legacy.


Experimental documentary “Monumento” intends to carefully contemplate the details and the complete set of Brecheret’s masterpiece.
