Adriano’s new film, which won the top prize at the festival It’s All True, is the fifth and most recent installment in the fundamental found footage filmmaker’s ongoing Untitled series, devoted to cinematic autobiography. It intercuts sounds and images from Yasujiro Ozu’s last film, ‘An Autumn Afternoon’ (1962), and that film’s realization with those of a Salvador sunrise, plus scenes shot during a recent train ride taken with a new lover between the Minas Gerais-based cities of Ouro Preto and Mariana. The film’s materials commingle beginnings and endings in poetic and celebratory form.
