Today, Mediático is proud to present a remarkable new video essay (embedded below) which was made in tribute to the work of the late Brazilian documentarist Eduardo Coutinho by Michael Chanan, Professor of Film and Video at Roehampton University, London. This work complements Mediático’s earlier published tribute to Coutinho, headed by a written study of his work by Cecilia Sayad. You can also read Prof. Chanan’s written obituary for Coutinho: ‘Eduardo Coutinho’, Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies, Vol. 23, No. 2, 2014 [download PDF].
