dbo:abstract
  • Adhemar Gonzaga (Rio de Janeiro, DF, 26 de agosto de 1901 — 29 de janeiro de 1978) foi um cineasta e jornalista brasileiro. Nasceu no Rio de Janeiro, cidade onde, nos anos 1920, formou um dos primeiros clubes de cinema do país, o Cineclube Paredão, juntamente com outros jovens intelectuais como Otávio de Faria, Plínio Sussekind Rocha, Almir Castro, Cláudio Melo e Pedro Lima, cujo objetivo era o estudo do cinema como uma arte. Criou a prestigiada revista Cinearte (1926-1942), que defendia para o cinema brasileiro padrões estéticos semelhantes aos dos filmes norte-americanos. Fez estágios em Hollywood e fundou, em 1930, os estúdios da Cinédia, primeira tentativa de industrializar a produção cinematográfica no país. Produziu mais de 50 filmes de diretores como Humberto Mauro, Gilda de Abreu e Luís de Barros. Dirigiu, entre outros, o drama Barro Humano (1929) e quatro comédias musicais que inspirariam as chanchadas dos anos 50, com destaque para o clássico Alô Alô Carnaval (1936), estrelado por Carmen Miranda e sua irmã Aurora Miranda, onde elas cantam o clássico "Cantoras do Rádio" e outros ídolos do rádio.

After a period of study in Hollywood, Gonzaga returned to Brazil and founded Cinédia a Rio de Janeiro-based company which quickly became the leading studio in Brazil. Cinédia specialised in producing Chanchadas, musical comedies with a populist appeal which often featured leading stage and singing stars. Chanchadas produced during Gonzaga's reign included Hello, Hello Brazil! (1935), Hello, Hello, Carnival! (1936) and Samba in Berlin (1943). Many of Brazil's major stars appeared in Cinédia productions, including Carmen Miranda. The studio remained in continual operation until 1951. (en)
