ABOUT THE PROJECT

"You Only Live Once" is a docudrama about the life of the most famous Brazilian playboy Jorginho Guinle. The movie mixed interviews, historical footage and ficcional scenes played in the most iconic buildings of Rio de Janeiro. The challenge of the editing was to mix documentary footage with played scenes not to look like simple TV documentaries. It was a difficult calculation of how long a scene could go without an interference of a voice over or how to converge these pieces together as only one solid narrative structure.

ABOUT JORGINHO GUINLE

In March of 2004, died the 88 years old the Brazilian playboy, Jorginho Guinle, without having worked a single day of his life. Known as "last tycoon playboy" and as a jazz enthusiast, Jorginho's billionaire family owned many historical buildings in Brazil, including Copacabana Palace hotel. His family connections with USA's richest families and politicians positioned Brazil with the Allies in the Second World War and Jorginho played an important rule in connecting Brazil and USA cultures with the movie industry. Copacabana became world wide famous in American movies in the 50's  and  the biggest international stars were invited to spend time at Copacabana Palace. Jorginho is also known by his love affairs with Marilyn Monroe, Anita Ekberg, Hedy Lamarr, Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth, Jayne Mansfield, Susan Hayward, Carole Landis and Romy Schneider.
