Brazil at Cinemes Girona

Five recent Brazilian film productions can be seen in Barcelona from 14 to 17 September.

Barcelona's Cinemes Girona is set to host the 4th Brazil Day Film Festival, with five recent productions that can be seen from 14 to 17 September. Three of these films are fictional works, two are documentaries and one if aimed at children.

The first screening, at 8pm on 14 September, features Mulher do Pai by Cristiane Oliveira, which tells the story of a teenager who has to take care of her blind father following her grandmother's death. On the following day, we can see the documentary Martírio by Vincent Carelli, Ernesto de Carvalho and Tita. The film is concerned with a large-scale protest in defence of sacred places in Brazil that turned into a massacre. On Saturday 16 September, we have Per ter onde ir by Jorane Castro, narrating a road trip by three women with different ideas about love and life. Finally, on Sunday 17, there will be two sessions – one at midday with the children's film Jonas e o circo sem lona, which tells the story of a boy who dreams of saving the circus that has been built near his home and, in the afternoon, Animal político, a film with a surrealistic edge about a cow who tries to convince itself that it's happy and sets out on a journey of self discovery.

All of these are recent productions and have won acclaim and awards at prestigious film festivals. Additional information is available at the following link.
