Director: Carlos Diegues
Running Time: 110 min.
Language: Portuguese with English subtitles
A hypnotically languorous road movie with an upbeat political kick. The story follows a small time traveling sideshow – Magician, Strong Man, Exotic Dancer – as they ply the dusty back roads of Brazil in the face of increasing disinterest. Filmed over 9,000 miles, Diegues’ film effortlessly conveys a sense of a living, breathing country as few films have before.
