    Paulo offers sublime portrayals of the cruelties and paradoxes of power and of the revolutions that brought it down, only to erect new bureaucracies, new cruelties and paradoxes. His work as a mercenary is in the fringe of these 2 worlds.

    "No Man's Land" is a thought-provoking exercise and an astute reminder of how much the so-called civilized world still resorts to violence to solve its conflicts, entrusting the job to (often invisible) professionals.

    I'm attracted by a series of things related to the ends of the earth, exiled places, margins.
