=================================
I don't have firsthand knowledge of any of this, but here's something I've
turned up--titles by Jose Mojica Marins that sound something like those in
the initial inquiry--which suggests that Marins may actually be the person
inquired about.
 
Jose Mojica Marins:
        ESTA NOITE ENCARNAREI NO TEU CADAVER/TONIGHT I WILL MAKE YOUR CORPSE
                TURN RED/TONIGHT I WILL PAINT IN FLESH COLOR--1966
 
        A MEIA NOITE LEVAREI A SUA ALMA--1966
 
        O ESTRANHO MUNDO DE ZE DO CAIXAO/THE STRENGE WORLD OF ZE DO CAIXAO--1968
 
That's all I've been able to find.  Hope it's of some help.
