Films from Brazil on focus

The 22nd edition of the International Film Festival of Kerala will witness the screening of films from Brazil, in the category entitled ‘Country Focus’. Six films curated by film scholar Stefan Solomon,  will be exhibited in this section.

Anita Rocha de Silveira’s ‘Kill Me Please’, Juliana Rojas’ ‘Necropolis Symphony’, Eduardo Nunes’ ‘Southwest’, Fernanda Pessoa’s ‘Stories that our Cinema did (Not) tell’, Adirley Queiros’ ‘White out, Black in’, and Thiago B. Mendonca’s ‘Miserable or a man screaming is not a dancing bear’ are the films to be screened in ‘Country Focus’.

Directors with a clear perspective and a lucid personal outlook add a novel dimension to the films from Brazil. The contemporary films reflect the socio-political circumstances with precision. These films effectively dovetail the country’s state of affairs, and the inner conflicts and anticipation of man.
