In 1955 the Plon editions published a book named "Tristes tropiques" (who can be translated in "Sad tropics") written by the ethnologist Claude Lévy - Strauss in which his Brazilian experience plays an important part. During some months the writer lives in the Sertao a desert area and tries to understand the human reality and the civilization concept. For Levy - Strauss the landscape leads the human being way of living. Dona Carmelita the elder from Bucarau a small village in the Sertao area dies at 94 years old and that event is a real tragedy for the inhabitants because she was like the keeper of their memory. So all the inhabitants must stay together for surviving. The directors and screenwriters Kleber Mendonca Filho et Juliano Dornelles have begun their collaboration ten years ago and their movie put together different kinds of cinematographic genders (western , adventure, science - fiction). The main actress part has been given to Sonia Braga the muse of the film director Kleber Mendonca Filho and she performs there like the most famous Italian neo - realist actresses. The "Bucarau" movie can also be considered as a commited movie because it has been shot at a time where a new generation of politicians who aren't very interested by nature or minorities take the power in Brazil.
