Filmmaker Luiz de Barros.

Status: Partially Found

Luiz de Barros was a Brazilian filmmaker and theater director. He began his artistic activities in Europe, more precisely in France, Switzerland and Italy. He studied in Milan, attending painting and scenography courses. In France he visited old studios, watching film shootings.[1]

His first film was "A Viuvinha" from 1916, which he himself destroyed, dissatisfied with the final result of the film. In 1929 he created the "Sincrocinex" system, with which the first Brazilian sound film "Acabaram-se os Otários" was made, starring the already famous actor Genésio Arruda, and the Italian Tom Bill, pseudonym of Loris Giraud.

In 1978 he released the book "Minhas Memórias de Cineasta", where he talks about his experience working in cinema. The book was released by publisher Artenova, in partnership with Embrafilme, and organized by critic and filmmaker Alex Viany.[2] Barros' last film was "Ele, Ela, Quem?" recorded in 1977, but released years later, in 1980.

In his long career, Luiz de Barros was the most prolific of Brazilian filmmakers, having made comedies, carnival and musical films and adaptations of literary and theatrical works, in short, of all genres.[3]


Research indicates that Luiz de Barros directed more than 265 films, 105 feature films and 160 short films. Only 106 films are known, including films that Barros helped produce and not including canceled films, implying that at least 158 films are unknown.

Of all 106 known films, only 35 have survived. However, countless images, fragments and scripts from lost films have survived.

Hei de Vencer

In 2023, in the documentary "Anésia - Um Voo no Tempo" fragments of an unknown fiction film about airplanes were found. After an analysis, it was concluded that the fragment belonged to Hei de Vencer. Due to the discovery of the fragments, Hei de Vencer is Barros' oldest film with known fragments.
