Orson Welles in Brazil

Famed American film director Orson Welles, whose Citizen Kane is still considered the top movie of all time, came to Brazil in 1942. He began a film about the conditions in Latin America but was unable to finish it.

Funded by the Rockefellers, It’s All True proved very influential. In fact, the segment on the hazardous conditions faced by small Brazilian fishing men, known as jangadeiros, propelled President Getulio Vargas to call on Congress to provide them with full social security and other benefits.

You can check out Four Men in a Raft here

We cannot find It’s All True in full. online yet.

The three segments are

1.)”My Friend Bonito” shot in Mexico in 1941.

2.) “The Story of Samba,” set in Rio de Janeiro

3.) the aforementioned “Jangadeiros” or “Four Men on a Raft”.
