Os candagos

 
Guillaume Linard-Osorio (Montereau, 1978) lives and works in Paris. ), He holds a Diploma in Applied Arts (Ecole Boulle, Paris, 2002) and a DPLG (ENS Malaquais, Paris, 2007).

Os candagos (2010): In 1964, when Philippe de Broca filmed "The Man from Rioí", Brasilia was a huge construction site. The city planned to attract Brazilís upper class and thus had to come to terms with an undesirable but indispensable population of the construction workers. Also known as candagos, these immigrants accounted for more than 50% of the working population, and were housed directly on site. The point of departure of the video Os candagos is an excerpt from The Man from Rio, a precise moment when Jean-Paul Belmondo is being chased in the city of Brasilia.
His work here consists in bringing out the documentary dimension of this passage to the detriment of the screenplay. The whole sequence is reworked image by image. Jean-Paul Belmondo is erased as is all trace of life, which focuses the eye on the city's construction site, acting as the film's decor. By depriving the film of its actors, it is matter of conjuring up the removal of this population: Brasilia, high point of the modern movement in architecture, becomes a ghost town.
