Brazil / 2016 / 145 minutes / DCP

The eternally-radiant Sonia Braga (Kiss of the Spider Woman) takes charge of yet another multi-award winning Brazilian film, this time embodying Clara, an older musical critic who is the last resident resisting development of the apartment complex where she has lived a full life while facing sleazy Recife development politics. Director Mendonca Filho adds layers of music and social transformation of the city in the past and present that link us to Clara’s intense sense of place and rights that resonate far beyond contemporary Brazil.
