A REQUIEM FOR OLAVO

A Requiem for Olavo is a short film produced, directed, shot and edited by filmmaker Thiago Da Costa about Brazilian philosopher Olavo de Carvalho.

Part prayer for Olavo’s soul, part remembrance of a man who had a deep impact in Brazilian culture in the past 15 years, A Requiem For Olavo intersperses images filmed during a Requiem Mass celebrated for the eternal repose of Olavo’s soul with many unpublished photos from Olavo’s personal archive in addition to new images filmed by Thiago during two visits he made to the philosopher’s house in the state of Virginia, Southern United States, in 2021.  

This short film was released on Brazil’s Lumine TV and on Olavo’s Youtube channel on April 29, 2022, the date on which Olavo would have completed 75 years of age.
