After being displayed on Banco do Brasil Cultural Center Rio de Janeiro, the exhibition Stephen King: Fear is Your Best Companion arrives at CCBB-SP on October 30th.
Until November 25, the public will be able to check 41 productions, including films, telefilms and miniseries, based on the author’s works, in addition to five films that were a reference for his work. With affordable tickets and some free sessions, the program also includes debates and master classes with invited professionals, in addition to sessions with accessibility (pounds and audio description). The project is sponsored by Banco do Brasil, through the Federal Culture Incentive Law, and is curated by Breno Lira Gomes and Rita Ribeiro.
Soon, the complete schedule will be released.
With the exhibition, the Brazilian public, especially the author’s fans, will have the opportunity to debate his work, discuss his creative process and analyze the adaptations of his books for cinema and television. In addition, the exhibitions are also intended to encourage reading, since the vast majority of the films that make up the selection are based on Stephen King’s books.
According to Rita Ribeiro, curator of the show, “in his works and academic writings, King reaffirms the influence of literature and cinema. Therefore, promoting a show that features copies of his filmography and TV adaptations is to promote a walk through the terrors that frighten 21st century man”, And complete,“The exhibition is also an opportunity to discuss the power of literary adaptations for cinema and television. How they can be guaranteed success or devastating failure. Adapted films do not always guarantee their success with the sale of books as a parameter”.
“Stephen King is one of the most outstanding writers of fantastic horror and fiction stories of his generation. Sample Stephen King: Fear is Your Best Companion intends to unravel the fascination exerted by this writer, who had more than 350 million books sold and won over the main Hollywood directors, who brought adaptations of his works to the screens, such as Stanley Kubrick, Brian De Palma, John Carpenter, David Cronenberg, among others”, Comments Breno de Lira Gomes, curator of the exhibition.
