Now-Again Records and What Matters Most present a short film duo entitled The Model, featuring the renowned Brazilian singer and actor Seu Jorge (City Of God, The Life Aquatic). The Model is inspired by the music from the self-titled Seu Jorge and Almaz album and was launched on Nowness.
The first part Chapter 1: Marcello in Limbo is a one-take affair that follows Jorge as he weaves through a cliffside mansion in the Hollywood Hills. The film showcases three cover songs from the album (Roy Ayers’ Everybody Loves The Sunshine, Martinho da Vila and João de Aquino's Cirandar and Kraftwerk’s The Model) and features the members of his band Almaz, producer Mario C and keyboardist Money Mark.
This 2-part film showcases live performance snippets of tracks from Jorge’s album, "Seu Jorge and Almaz," that function as narrative development in the piece, rather than background music, and invariably leave the viewer wanting more.
Filmed in Hollywood, California.
