'Raul: O Início, o Fim e o Meio' screening in London
Sep 26, 2012
Raul Seixas is one of the most iconic figures to come out of Brazilian music, a man who was able to connect with listeners the way that Joe Strummer did, who lived the lifestyle of Harry Nilsson or John Martyn (i.e. drink until your body can’t take anymore) and had a spiritual (yet personal) side that allowed him to connect with the Brazilian people in a way few other artists can. Raul – O Início, O Fim E O Meio (Raul – The Beginning, The End And The Middle, directed by Walter Carvalho) traces Seixas’ life and career from his birth in Salvador, Bahia in 1945 to his death in Sao Paulo from Pancreatitis aged 44.
