Video Trailer: BEL BORBA AQUI - In Theatres October 3, 2012

Known as "The People's Picasso," for 35 years Bel Borba has transformed the face of his hometown of Salvador de Bahia, Brazil--a historic city that is 500 years old--with beautiful, grand-scale and awe-inspiring art including sculpture, painting, murals and mosaics. Working with tiles, steel, sand, clay, and an eclectic melange of recycled material including Coca Cola bottles and wood from Salvador's famed Savaro boats, Borba's ubiquitous public works reflect his feverishly ebullient personality and unbridled love of community. With an evocative Brazilian soundtrack and lush cinematography that exposes the lavish colors of Salvador, BEL BORBA AQUI explores the intense and intimate relationship between this unique city--a fusion of European, African, and Native Indian cultures--and her beloved native son.
