    Drama

    Joana grew up in Paris surrounded by rock and literature. But in 1979, when amnesty is granted in Brazil, Joana moves back to the country she barely remembers, overnight and against her will. In Rio, she recovers pieces of memories from a fragmented childhood and a missing father. Not everything is real, not everything is imagination. And as she remembers, Joana is able to write her own story in the present tense.

    Largely autobiographical, Flavia Castro’s Orizzonti-presented film is a seamless blend of personal and societal histories of Brazil after the fall of the military dictatorship

    A graceful feature debut, a pleasurable watch.
