Helena Solberg (1938) began her career in the late 1950s, and she became known as the only woman to join the circle of filmmakers in Brazil’s Cinema Novo. In 1966, she directed ‘A Entrevista’, a short film that inaugurates female authorship in Brazil’s modern cinema. ‘Meio-Dia' is her second film, a poetic-revolutionary manifesto made on the eve of the AI-5 martial law imposed by the military government.
