CCBB Cinema Has Free Screening With Steve McQueen Films | Brasilia Web

In celebration of the 91st birthday of the star Steve McQueen, the Banco do Brasil Cultural Center resumes the Steve McQueen – The King of Cool show in person, with the exhibition of iconic films from the American actor’s career in digital format. The exhibition, which runs until July 4th, with free entry, outlines the trajectory of one of the main phenomena in the film industry of all times, which influenced a number of actors as well as music and animation artists. The exhibition had its first part produced in the online format (showing films with accessibility, workshop, lectures, debate and live) in March of this year, due to the municipal decree that provided for the closing of establishments due to Covid-19.

Curated by journalist, critic and film director Mario Abbade and produced by BLG Entertainment, the show features 29 films (with the right to 3 documentaries about his life and work) from ‘The king of cool’ (in Portuguese it would be something like ‘king dos unscolados’), nickname that follows the actor until today, more than 40 years after his death. Steve McQueen (24/03/1930 – 07/11/1980) is remembered for his iconic characters and his unique style. The actor was marked by anti-hero roles in the movies, such as luxury thief Thomas Crown, police officer Frank Bullitt and poker player Cincinnati Kid. In this way, he became a kind of symbol of the counterculture in the United States, in opposition to the traditional good guys in cinema. McQueen’s talent, however, was not limited to acting: he was a major menswear icon who influenced millions of men over the decades.

According to the curator, the Steve McQueen – The King of Cool exhibition serves both the study of scenic art and the analysis of a phenomenon of culture. “The actor is part of a lineage of names that constitute landmarks in dramatic art, and it is necessary that his filmography be observed and analyzed from this perspective”, evaluates Mário Abbade. Movie names like Colin Farrell, Kevin Costner, Pierce Brosnan and Bruce Willis point to him as a hero and inspiration to become actors. “McQueen was such a strong icon that he felt free to say no to directors like Coppola, Spielberg and Milos Forman, turning down millionaire invites and roles other professionals dreamed of, like those in Apocalypse Now and Stranger in the Nest,” says Abbade .
