The Great Pretender

René Lavand is a world-famous Argentinean illusionist specializing in card tricks. He creates his illusions with his left hand only, having lost his right hand in an accident when he was only a child. Far from letting himself be overcome by this incident, he devoted himself to master the sleight of hand and would turn into one of the greatest illusionists of all times. However, the power of his shows does not lie in his physical peculiarities but in the astonishing stories that frame his illusions and his masterful use of pause and silence as a dramatic element.
The Great Pretender is the warm, laid-back and intimate portrait of a unique artist who, at times, seems to lay his masks down and reveal his true self.

Moacir (2011)

Moacir is Brazilian and an Argentine citizen for the last 25 years. He is semi-literate and despite possessing no formal musical training, is bearer of an amazing talent for singing. Moacir is made of music. He also talks a lot, eats a lot, dance a lot, laughs a lot, everything in him is “a lot”. That is why he have spent much of his life locked up in mental institutions. At age 65, with a psychiatric diagnosis of “paranoid schizophrenia”, Moacir seemed to be a typical case of chronic patients. However, after 15 years of hospitalization, is granted freedom and leaves the Borda Psychiatric Hospital.

This story follows his passionate journey to fulfill her greatest wish, recording an album with themes of authorship (which were lost for over 25 years). The artist and musician Sergio Pángaro will follow Moacir’s Journey. All this and much else will happen while fighting the ghosts of madness and marginalization, a journey full of fanfare, singing, dancing, fighting, chaos, humor and charm.
