His visit is timed to Carnival, the week-long national celebration that shuts down much of the country. In addition to filming revelers, Lee has also sat down with the Mayor of Salvador, Antonio Carlos Magalhaes Neto, and singer Ivete Sangalo. Lee has been working on the documentary for 10 months and has already interviewed soccer star Neymar, musician Caetano Veloso, and rapper Criolo, and plans at least four more visits to the country before Go, Brazil, Go! debuts in Cannes in 2014, just before the start of the World Cup in Brazil.
