The Welles Raft

A Jangada de Welles

Brazil, 2019


The sailorman Manuel Jacaré was swallowed by the sea when Orson Welles was filming It’s All True in 1942. The fact evokes memories of the dictatorship of the Estado Novo, of World War II, of Ceará fishermen’s struggle for labor rights and housing in their traditional space.
