Article by Ana Paula Sousa (Folha de São Paulo)

The filmmaker Walter Salles took the launch of ‘Na Estrada – O Cinema de Walter Salles’ written by journalist Marcos Strecker, to bring to light parts of the documentary “On The Road”, ‘ sort of a test’ for a project with a bit of epicness.

“The only way of doing this film, was doing it before a documentary in search of this film.” Says the director in an exposition, which happened Wednesday, in São Paulo. “I wanted to reach every director who had contact with this film” he says. And it wasn’t just a few names and ideas.

The rights about the Jack Kerouac’s epic book are owned since 1979 by Francis Ford Coppola. Dennis Hopper, Gus Van Sant, and even Jean-Luc Godard were involved. And they ran away. “There was a time we even though about making this movie in Russia” says Coppola, giving the dimension of the delirium that were around the adaptation. To make it possible, Salles thought that is was needed to understand the sense of the road movie before.

He goes back to his own movie fanaticism to explain the gender. “I started watching movies in Paris, as a kid. I didn’t like the town and the cinema was my escape possibility” he says “The cinema opened doors for me. And that take us to the origin of the road movie”
The road movie, according to Salles, gets born with directors that in times of silent films “mapped the physical and human geography” until then, unknown.

Paste the camera into the characters that are moving in a space, still is, a manner to discover the identity of a country and a society. The westerns did this. “Sem Destino” (1969) with Dennis Hopper also did this. And that is what On The Road will try to find. The parts of Walter Salles’ documentary On The Road, are in first place, and adventure through cinema’s history and for it’s possible languages.

We know, for example, that it was through a documentary that Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975) found the faces and landscapes of the fiction “O Evangelho Segundo Sào Mateus” It was also born the first real captured images for “Dong”, the beautiful movie “Em Busca da Vida”, by Jia Zhang-ke. Having as a starting point a village’s destruction for the construction of a barrage, the Chinese moviemaker made a movie about the identity’s dilution in a contemporary world.

“People know what they are through the place they live. When you’re on the road, in a trip, you sort of live a non-identity life.” Says moviemaker Win Wenders, to Walter Salles camera’s lenses. “On the road, you belong to the world.”
