Ernesto Varela in Rio – 1985

Days before the first Rock in Rio, Ernesto Varela (a character created by Marcelo Tas) goes to Rio to try to understand what makes someone an authentic Carioca. The star of the video is debatable – not sure if it’s Tas himself or the kid on the beach. Each video seems to have both Portuguese and English subtitles in the settings section.

The cameraman, called Valdeci, is none other than Fernando Meirelles, the City of God director. You can see this video and more on Tas’ official site.
