VideoFilmes enters ‘Eye of the Storm’

Film is directed by Eduardo Valente

VideoFilmes, the production house of Walter Salles and Mauricio Andrade Ramos, is producing Eduardo Valente’s “Eye of the Storm.”

The first feature from director-film critic Valente, who won Cannes’ Cinefondation in 2002 with short “Sol alaranjado” (Daughter and Father), “Storm” continues Rio de Janeiro-based VideoFilmes’ promotion of new Brazilian talent.

Kept under wraps, “Storm” has now quietly gone into pre-production, and looks set for a major fest berth. “Storm” tells the story of a tragic burglary, which leads to a policeman’s accidental shooting and death of the father of the family burgled.

“ ‘Storm’ is an anti-violence film about violence, its origins and consequences,” said Andrade Ramos.

A 100% VideoFilmes production, “Storm” taps Ancine Brazilian state subsidy coin Brazilian tax coin from Petrobras.

Beyond accompanying Salles and Daniela Thomas’ Cannes Competition player “Linha de passe,” Andrade Ramos said he was talking with several companies for post-production finance on “Storm.”

“VideoFilmes has specialized in new directors. Many debutantes are in their mid-30s. Brazil suffered a bottleneck in production until the new tax laws really begun to kick in the second half of the 1990s,” Andrade Ramos said.

In October, Sergio Machado, whose “Lower City” played Un Certain Regard in 2005, will shoot an adaptation of Brazilian writer Jorge Amado’s short novel, “A morte e a morte de Quincas Berro d’Agua” for VideoFilmes.
