The character Moacir acquired a certain fame in Argentina thanks to the documentaries that portrayed him: first in the neuropsychiatric hospital Borda, in the movie “Fortalezas“, and later in “Moacir“, already out of that institution, fulfilling his dream of recording a album with his own songs, accompanied by an orchestra of professional musicians led by Sérgio Pángaro.
Moacir III is a international co-production between Miração Films and Duermevela, from Argentina, which is a discursive balance between fiction and documentary. In it, we see Moacir’s debut as a film director. All these situations are interspersed with scenes that show the development of Moacir’s film, where we see the tensions between the character-director Moacir, and Tomás Lipgot, the documentary filmmaker.
The film had its premiere in Brazil at the 41st International Film Festival of São Paulo.
