Bingo: The King of Mornings
From the BAFTA award winning editor of City of God and Tree of Life comes the story of Augusto, an irreverent actor searching for his place in the spotlight. After a successful career in “softcore Porn” he finally gets the big break he has been waiting for. He becomes BINGO the clown – the host of a 1980’s Brazilian Children’s morning show. With his wacky humor, and ambitious talent – he turns it into the most watched morning show in all of Brazil. There is a catch however – he is forbidden contractually to reveal his identity. He becomes the man behind the clown mask.

“If Martin Scorsese directed a Krusty The Clown origin story, the finished article might end up looking something like Bingo: King of the Mornings, an upbeat neon-lit ode to the seductive but seedy world of Brazilian television in the 1980s. ” – Deryn O’ Sullivan, Cinemagazine
“Dripping with 80’s neon, drugs, and clown sex, it’s boogie nights with funny shoes” – Total Film
