InterFaceFilmes has released a new promo video for the upcoming documentary about SEPULTURA’s incredible journey from Brazil to the world.
The long awaited documentary is coming to life with help by Kickstarter. Filmmaker Otavio Juliano has been following the band for the better part of 2010-2013, a time of tension and triumph for Sepultura, as they toured and recorded their album Kairos. Nothing has been off-limits. This amazing story will go through Sepultura’s history, myths, conflicts, personnel changes and struggles with the internet economy in the early 2000s as well interviews and rare footage. This documentary is certain to bring fans closer to the band they love.
According to a Kickstarter press release, “about 50% of the film has been shot so far. We have witnessed this historic band experiencing wrenching transformations and unprecedented growth. We opened Sepultura’s vault and dig into the best rare and unseen footage of the last 30 years. We will see them at their most vulnerable and human, and also as idols of the heavy metal genre. Those elements make the overall film an uncommonly powerful statement.”
Sepultura told BraveWords recently: “Since we started writing Kairos, we’ve been filming a documentary. We have this director from Brazil who actually approached us to do this and we are helping him as much as we can with our old VHS tapes and digitizing our still photos. So he’s been following us. He’s going after the old crew members, the Cavalera brothers, people that were involved with Sepultura in the beginning and now. I think it’s going to be very interesting. We’ve never really had a chance to show the history of sepulture in that manner, with ourselves talking about it. We don’t really have an idea when it’s coming out, but hopefully in 2014, it will be ready to be released. It will be 30 years of Sepultura, so it will be a very special date.
