Engaging with the world
| 97 minutes | 2017
A Brazilian road movie, lyrical but unsentimental, on the tragic, unjust world of a working man sensitive to the wonders of existence. A young man living in an industrial neighbourhood comes across the diary of a comatose factory worker and plunges into the man’s life of criss-crossing Brazil in search of work. Uchoa and Dumans take a deeply humanist approach to themes of solitude, identity, self-discovery and untrammelled economic development in this work of remarkable social realism.IN COMPÉTITION
