FILM SELECTION

HELENO
“A highly unusual football film, shot in black and white with a self-conscious artistry, a languid portrait of a genius seduced into oblivion by his own demons and by the temptations of the Rio de Janeiro of the 40s.” – The Guardian

AMAZONIA ETERNA
The Amazon hosts the world’s richest reserve of biodiversity and biocomplexity and some of the poorest people on earth. Can the environment be preserved without sacrificing the lives of its traditional custodians?

HAULING
One family amongst 200,000 Brazilians who sort through 125,281t of household rubbish every day to sell it for recycling.

SOULBOUND
No money or support from friends or family, Gil meets Otávio, a man tormented by the past. In each other, the two men found happiness, but life has its own ways of blindsiding destiny.

TWO RABBITS
Edgar had a cushy life of video gaming and porn surfing. Why does he now want to get involved with favela thugs, major São Paulo
gangsters, greedy lawyers and corrupt congressmen?

MULATAS
“People think that to be a mulata it’s enough to put on a g-string and samba away” (Ana Pérola, Escola Mocidade Independente de Padre Miguel). “Being a mulata is in
the blood. You’re born with it.” (Rose Bombom, Escola Grande Rio)

LAST ROAD TO THE BEACH
Leo, Norberto and Paula are much more than friends. They are mates, lovers, each other’s life companions. They follow their heart to Brazil’s southern beaches, where they test the limits of their bond.

HIGHRISE
“Effortlessly provokes thoughts on inequality, satisfaction and oblivion”. LA Weekly

WE’RE TOGETHER
An unexpected love triangle. Murilo is in love with his flatmate, the Argentinian musician Juan. Juan won’t have him, and much prefers his best friend, the serious doctor Carmen. She is not holding back. Will São Paulo’s visceral twists and turns save their relationships?

IMPERFECT LOVE
Who says we have to accept what is resented to us by destiny? Having only a few hours left before leaving to Norway, Julio takes Ana on a journey through the streets of São Paulo, visiting hidden and less known pots, places that once nurtured their love and will now help its rebirth.

LESS THAN NOTHING
Dante is interned as a schizophrenic at a psychiatric hospital in Porto Alegre. He talks to no one, and seems oblivious to the world. Dr Paula, suspects otherwise, and ends up uncovering the plot that stands behind his illness.
