SILVIO” stars Rodrigo Faro, who made an exception and returned to acting after a 15-year hiatus, just for this role.

In the unprecedented teaser, Silvio appears wistful, in the living room of his home, and tells the photograph of Manuel da Nóbrega – the man who gave him his great professional opportunity and became a close friend – about his day, full of great emotions.

“Playing Silvio in the cinema was definitely the biggest challenge of my career to date. He has always been and is a reference communicator for me. When I was little and went to SBT to participate in his program, I would hide in the audience, watching him present, and I imagined that one day I could be on stage just like him, being a presenter, a communicator”comments Faro. “After I became a presenter, I had the opportunity to meet Silvio on the stage of his program to receive the press trophy a few times, and I always wanted to pay some tribute to him. And now I’m having the opportunity to make this great tribute in life – a film about Silvio Santos for Brazil and, why not, for the whole world to see and know the story of this incredible guy! I’m very happy and excited about this debut. It took 40 days to shoot the film – more than three hours of characterization per day – all of this simultaneously with the recording of my programs at Record. The result was beautiful and exciting. I hope Brazil receives this film with lots of love, because Silvio Santos deserves this honor.”concludes Faro.
