DirectorCast

Marcelo Gomes-

Brazil, Portugal / 2017 / 102 minutes

A severed head resting on a tree stump in a downpour, Joaquim sees his own destiny from the very beginning. In eighteen-century Brazil, Second Lt. Joaquim, nicknamed Tiradentes, takes on a dangerous expedition of the Portuguese colonial authority to find new veins of gold. As he advances through the jungle, he sees all too clearly the machinery of oppression. Gomes interprets the enlightenment of the Brazilian revolutionary Tiradentes in this partly fictional, partly historical drama under a passionate yet nonjudgmental eye, in a reflection of the country today. In competition, Berlin International Film Festival.
