José Padilha ([ʒuˈzɛ paˈdʒiʎɐ]; born August 1, 1967) is a Brazilian film director, producer and writer.

Biography

Après des études à la Pontificia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro, sanctionné par un diplôme en économie et à Oxford où il étudie l'économie politique, la littérature anglaise et la politique internationale, José Padilha aborde le cinéma comme producteur exécutif du film Boca de Ouro.

Scénariste et producteur du documentaire Os Carvoeiros en 1999, il réalise son 1er long-métrage en 2002, Bus 174 (Ônibus 174), qui relate l'histoire réelle et avec une issue tragique, du détournement avec prise d'otages d'un autobus de la ligne 174 de Rio de Janeiro, le 12 juin 2000.

En 2007, José Padilha tourne le film Troupe d'élite (Tropa de Elite). Basé sur le livre Tropa de Elite, coécrit par trois auteurs, dont le sociologue Luiz Eduardo Soares le film, avec, comme tête d'affiche Wagner Moura, dépeint la guerre sanglante que mène la police carioca, sur fond de corruption de cette dernière, contre les narcotrafiquants sur-armés des favelas.

En 2018, il crée une série sur Netflix, "O Mecanismo", à propos de l'enquête du Lava-Jato au Brésil. Cette série fait l'objet de controverses, car elle attribue à l'ex-président Lula les paroles d'un parlementaire convaincu de corruption, Romero Jucá, attribuant ainsi à Lula une culpabilité qui n'est pas la sienne.

In 2028, multinational conglomerate OmniCorp revolutionizes warfare with the introduction of robotic peacekeepers capable of maintaining law and order in hot spots such as Iran. Led by CEO Raymond Sellars, the company moves to market its tech to domestic law enforcement, but the passage of the Dreyfus Act, forbidding deployment of drones on U.S. soil, prevents this. Aware that most Americans oppose the use of military systems in their communities, Sellars asks Dr. Dennett Norton and his research team to create an alternative. The result is a proposal for a cyborg police officer. However, Norton informs Sellars that only someone who is stable enough to handle being a cyborg can be turned into one, and some candidates are rejected.

Ce documentaire explore les allégations, initialement publiées dans le livre Darkness in El Dorado, à l'encontre des anthropologues ayant étudié les Indiens Yanomami dans les années 1960 et 1970. Au-delà d'une mise en doute de la vérité scientifique dans le domaine très particulier de l’anthropologie, ce film porte des accusations graves incluant violation de l'éthique médicale et crimes sexuels.
