Luiz Fernando Carvalho is the award-winning director of Lavoura Arcaica (2001), telenovelas such as Renascer (1993) and O Rei do Gado (1996), and miniseries such as Os Maias (2001), Hoje é Dia de Maria (2005; two parts), A Pedra do Reino (2007), and Capitu (2008). In his recent works he has been exploring forms of dramaturgy that represent Brazil in a new way, without relying on the realist forms of representation that have traditionally characterized both film and television in Brazil and around the world.
