Selected filmography[edit]


Pereio is known for being an ardent atheist and communist who is heavily opposed to the statue of Christ the Redeemer, claiming that it violates Brazil's secular constitution and ruins the beauty of the mountain. Since late 20th century he has been gathering signatures for its removal.[2]
