Neville dAlmeida

Born in Brazil, he lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. He took acting classes at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, starting in 1960. Five years later he continued his performing studies at the New York College, in the U.S.. Censored at the beginning of his work as a director and unable to show his first films he ended up becoming a popular film director. Despite his protests, critics have labeled him together with movie directors Rogério Sganzerla and Júlio Bressane as one of the leaders of the Cinema Marginal movement, a movie current interested in exploring the contradictions and existential musings of the Brazilian middle-class.
