In 1992 Iberê was involved in the filming for Renato Falcão’s short film Presságio. In one of the scenes the actor Manuel Aranha plays the part of the leading character in Luigi Pirandello’s play The Man with the Flower in his Mouth, while Iberê draws him. Working on the film led to a series of gouache works which the artist donated to the campaign for prevention of AIDS – An Act of Love and Life.
The Italian author and playwright Luigi Pirandello (1867-1936) wrote L'Uomo dal Fiore in Bocca [The Man with the Flower in his Mouth] in 1923. The one-act play tells the story of a man who finds himself in a critical situation, which leads him to become more aware of the prosaic situations of daily life.
