Welcome to this site dedicated to film director and writer Mário Peixoto (1908-1992). I would like to thank the Mário Peixoto Archives and especially Saulo Pereira de Mello for his support. The information contained in these pages is based on his research and publications.

Latest news: In the end of 2013 the Cinemateca released a DVD edition of Limite as part of the second volume of its jornal Revista da Cinemateca Brasileira

Our main interest is to divulge the artistic work developed by Mário. 
Since the research on Mário Peixoto is part of the academic work developed at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Porto Alegre, (http://www.ufrgs.br/setordealemao), there is no commercial interest involved; our only aim is to contribute towards a wider recognition of his unique work.
