O fim do sem fim (The end of the endless), 2001 (1hr 30min) 

In this documentary, the directors set out on a journey through remote towns and villages in Brazil in search of crafts and professions that are near extinction. Filmed in the late 1990s and released in 2001, the work shows the imminent turn of the century, and the new millennium appears in the ominous imaginary of many outspoken characters whose “street philosophies” reflect upon a rapidly changing era. Twenty years later, the COVID-19 pandemic, a looming ecological catastrophe, and overall political and economic instability and uncertainty present a global crisis unlike any experienced before in modern times. This film helps us rethink what

technological progress has brought to our lives, and how radically it has changed the social, creative and behavioral fabric of our societies.

Notes for Tomorrow is a traveling exhibition organized and produced by Independent Curators International (ICI) and initiated by Frances Wu Giarratano, Becky Nahom, Renaud Proch, and Monica Terrero. The artworks were selected by alumni of ICI’s Curatorial Intensive, a professional development program for emerging curators that has helped foster a new generation of curators since 2010. The exhibition was made possible with the generous support of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, VIA Art Fund, ICI’s Board of Trustees and International Forum, and The John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities at Haverford College.
