Psychoanalyst Hugo Denizart made this documentary in 1982 at the request of the Brazilian Ministry of Health to investigate conditions at the hospital Colônia Juliano Moreira. In the process he discovered Arthur Bispo do Rosário and his work and was so impressed that made him the subject of the documentary instead.

This film accompanies the display Arthur Bispo do Rosário, 13 August – 28 October 2012

The display brings together over 80 artworks ranging from sculptures, hand-embroidered banners and garments, showcasing the variety and creativity of Arthur Bispo do Rosario (1909-1989), one of Brazil’s most recognised artists.
