The secret of the sauce



    the land of Samba, the country where the economy is growing up very fast, the land of soccer...

    Really? Do you know what is happening in Brazil? What is hidden? The real social problems? Researches shows that more than 60% of public money is stolen every year.

    And the result: children dying because there is no hospitals, food, water.

    People without education, schools.

    Look the pictures attached. This movie is nonpartisan.

    It just shows the corruption and how people with power can "destroy" indirectly millions of people. Celebrities of Hollywood like Lindsay Lohan and Danny Glover are seeing the Brazilian politicians.

    It is a current issue. See their Twitters. We used the money we got in publicity to create this film to show the world a call for help.

    Trust, it's very sad you see people driving Ferrari and at the same place, children eating garbage.

    We chose this kind of cinema because the documentaries don’t have effects anymore because you just need to look the other side of the street to see surreal things.

    The inequality is very big.

    In San Paolo, a very rich city you can see people driving Ferrari children eating garbage. But some the people are waking up and trying to change.

    Milion of citizens go to the streets to marches against the corruption, "The Secret of the sauce” has a particular content and style.

    This film uses a lot of elements of the contemporary cinema. We created a film with a different sthetic, almost a european Cinéma Vérité, that put the viewer as a spectator from reality, that is, you are not just a person watching the movie.

    You are living it too.

    We broke the “fourth wall”, and use many tools to create this atmosphere. The content interacts with the reality all the time.

    The story presents the trajectory of a politician and has many hidden metaphors.

    T In this film the mom is the Homeland and the father, the State.

    It’s not the same thing.

    The camera man is the media and the citizens are the “sauce”.

    And the great problem (paradoxically the solution): education… across the board! For us, cinema is more than entertainment.

    Through the art we can start new thoughts, feelings, questions and try to change the world, changing mind through the art.

    Of course it's not fast and the real change starts with a "Good morning, how are you?", but the stories, the examples, the knowledge over the years appeared more effective than wars.
