Goulart Filmes was created in 2003 by Yves Goulart and operates in the fields of documentary and fiction, focusing on the use of a poetic style. It was founded at the same time digital video came into being and democratized filmmaking.
Goulart’s films go beyond independent filmmaking because they are handcrafted in the broadest sense and in line with the movement of filmmakers of the digital and HDV generation. With the need to express itself through cinema, the Handcrafted Cinema Movement, besides using all the tools of cinematography, distinguishes itself by the fact that most of the work is controlled directly by the creator and director, that is, screenplay, production, photography, filming, editing and advertising.
The experience of filmmaker Goulart as an actor in theater, on television and in film gives him an attentive and critical view of the world and this is what makes the great difference in Goulart Filmes. A view that goes into the depths of the mines (Black Gold), passes by dance (Illuminations) and travels the roads that beckon (Tracking The Cultural Convoy).
"The most interesting is that his sources of inspiration are things either he himself or someone close to him has experienced, revealing, therefore, that the truth of his artistic world (internal) resides within the truth of his real world (external). What common eyes ignore, the eyes of the artist transform into art." (Micki Mihich, Dynamite Online)
Goulart Filmes has a Brazilian identity and uses the cultural diversity of the country to present and integrate itself into the world, through films of quality and solid content, utilizing cinema as a vehicle that is able to go beyond borders to share culture and education.
The universal values of ethics, honesty, truth and justice are the fundamental pillars for human coexistence. Goulart Filmes, through its works, will always respect these values, documenting and recording movement, sound, light and darkness, immortalizing the passage of man here.
