Brazilian cinema today suddenly and prematurely lost one of its most talented exponents, Breno Silveira. Talented director, devoted father and good people to the highest degree. A sadness.

Saddened by the departure of Breno Silveira. A nice guy, talented, creative and partner. Too young to leave us full of plans in our heads. Kisses to family and friends.

This life… Always confirming that it really is a breath. It is very sad to receive the news of the departure of Breno Silveira, an incredible director and filmmaker that I had the privilege to work with. At the age of 58 he leaves us, and he also leaves brilliant works in Brazilian cinema.
