Screening & Live Event
Friday, September 9, 2016, 7:00 p.m.
With director Sandra Kogut in person
Dir. Sandra Kogut. 2015, 109 mins. Digital projection. In Portuguese with English subtitles. U.S. premiere. After two children are abandoned at the door of a building in Ipanema, bearing a note for a stranger who lives there, the families involved are swept into a whirlwind of profound changes. Kogut, who often works on the border between fiction and documentary, has deliberately set this story of class disparity and personal awakening against the backdrop of Rio's dramatically and swiftly changing urban landscape—partly a result of Rio's preparations for the World Cup and Olympic Games. This tender story was a favorite at last year's Rio, Toronto, and Havana (winner of Best Director) Film Festivals.
