Some of his colleagues finished the enterprise Coutinho took on before his death, in which he attempted to understand teenagers today. What they think, what they want, and how they live are only some of the paths taken in the conversations he engaged in with Brazilian students. 

There is no other Brazilian filmmaker as close as Eduardo Coutinho, who once chain-smoked on the stairs of the Leopoldo Lugones Theater while waiting to converse with the audience when he came to DocBuenosAires to present Playing (2007). And Last Conversations is the name of his moving posthumous film, which was finished by his friend João Moreira Salles with the help of the master’s usual editor, Jordana Berg. Based on conversations between young Brazilian students and the director, shortly before his death in February 2014, the film tries to understand how today’s teenagers think, dream and live. The film didn’t get the attention it deserved, not even among Latin American critics, even though it somehow summarizes his entire work. LM
