  Bingo: The King of the Mornings
  No, it's not a Brazilian Pennywise
  Empyrean Pictures and Miracle Communications are delighted to announce that their film BINGO: THE KING OF THE MORNINGS from Brazilian award-winning director Daniel Rezende (Oscar Nominee and BAFTA Winner CITY OF GOD), will be released in UK cinemas from 15th December. Starring Vladimir Brichta and Leandra Leal, BINGO: THE KING OF THE MORNINGS tells the true story of Augusto, an irreverent actor searching for his place in the spotlight.

This year's Brazilian Oscar and BAFTA submission, BINGO: THE KING OF THE MORNINGS is the directorial debut feature for Daniel Rezende who is best known for his Academy Award nominated and BAFTA winning editing work on cult classic CITY OF GOD (2002) as well as his work on Terence Malick's TREE OF LIFE (2011), ROBOCOP (2014), BLINDNESS (2008) and THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES (2004).

Augusto (Vladimir Brichta) is an actor hungry for a place in the spotlight, following the footsteps of his mother, a stage artist in the 50s. While starring in soft porn and soap operas he finally gets the chance to conquer the crowds when he is cast as BINGO, a television host clown. With his irreverent humour and natural talent, the show is a big hit, but a clause on his contract forbids him to reveal his true identity. Augusto becomes an anonymous celebrity. With makeup on, he brings happiness to children across the country but not to his own son Gabriel, that sees his father distancing himself in search of recognition. Filled with irony and humour and an exaggerated pop look from the backstage universe of the Brazilian 80s television, the film tells the incredible and surreal story of a man that whilst looking for his artistic value, finds his personal decay.
