Rogério Sganzerla

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rogério Sganzerla[1] (4 May 1946 — 9 January 2004) was a Brazilian filmmaker. One of the main names of the cinema marginal underground movement, his most known work is The Red Light Bandit (1968).[2] Influenced by Orson Welles, Jean-Luc Godard, and José Mojica Marins, Sganzerla often used clichés from film noir and pornochanchadas. Irony, narrative subversion and collage were trademarks of his film aesthetics.


Sganzerla was born in Joaçaba, in the state of Santa Catarina. During the 1960 decade he wrote for the newspaper O Estado de S. Paulo as film reporter. In 1967 Sganzerla directed his first short film, Documentário. In 1968 he directed his first feature film, O Bandido da Luz Vermelha (The Red Light Bandit)[3]

In 1970 he founded the Bel-Air film company, together with Júlio Bressane. Headed by Sganzerla, the company produced the films Copacabana Mon Amour and Sem essa, aranha (1970). In 1985 Sganzerla directs the docufiction Nem Tudo É Verdade (It's Not All True) about Orson Welles' arrival to Brazil to film his unfinished documentary It's All True.[4]

Sganzerla died in 2004, of a brain tumor, shortly after finishing his last film O signo do caos.[5]
