DIGITAL TUESDAYS PRESENTS
TWO FILMS FROM BRAZIL
Tuesday 15th November 2011
Tate South Lambeth Library, 180 South Lambeth Road, SW8
TIME: 7.00 refreshments, 7.30 screening
Director Roberta Fortuna (22min) - Roberta’s grandparents left Sicily for Brazil in the early 1900s. Now her father may return to live in his parents’ homeland, Sicily. For Roberta, born and raised in Brazil but currently based in London, it’s the opportunity to discover previously unknown aspects of her family and her own identity. What does it mean to live far from the land of your ancestors? And what does it mean to go back? ANELLO premiered at Sheffield DocFest in 2011.
Director Joana Nin (15 min) - Brazil has some of the most violent prisons in the world, but romance and passion can survive even extreme conditions. VISITA INTIMA reveals the extraordinary lives of women who wait on the outside – some for many years – for the men they love. Filmed around the Parana state prison in the South of Brazil, VISITA INTIMA has won 21 awards, from festivals in both Brazil and Portugal.
Both films are in Portuguese with English subtitles
