BR/FR/QA 2018. D: Flávia Castro. A: Flávia Castro. 96 min. Feature. Portuguese OV with Eng. ST. and German voice-over. Suitable from age 12. Recommended from age 13

In her feature film debut, Flávia Castro tells the autobiographically inspired story of teenager Joana. At the end of the 1970s, Joana lives in Paris and returns with her family to her birth country Brazil against her will. In her new old hometown she begins a complex confrontation with her childhood in Rio de Janeiro. True, believed and invented things mix in Joana’s memories of her father’s disappearance during the military dictatorship. A quiet and imaginatively told film about growing up and memory. (CS)
