Synopsis

What makes a researcher that lives in a violence-filled city like São Paulo paint canvases as if they were fragments of his daily life? What matters to Manoel Paes Neto are the glimpses of people expressing supplication, regret and freedom. He cannot tell why these people catch his attention. He does not look for famous criminals. He is more interested in the sad ones, the humble ones. His sphere of artistic interest is made up of the homeless, young offenders, the underground world. His paintings are extraordinarily sublime, as he transforms the daily emotions brutalized by the fumes of exhaust pipes into paintings, immortalizing, with light, fragments of the lives of the people of São Paulo.
