Viajo Porque Preciso, Volto Porque Te Amo
Regional Premiere

Viajo Porque Preciso, Volto Porque Te Amo
I Travel Because I Have to, I Come Back Because I Love You
Marcelo Gomes, Karim Ainouz
Brazil, Drama, 2009
75 min, Digital, Color
Portuguese with English subtitles

JosÃÃ,© Renato, geologist, 35 years old, is sent on a fieldtrip to the scrublands of the Sertão, a semi-arid isolated region in the Northeast of Brazil. The goal of his survey is to assess possible routes for a water canal from the regionâs only voluminous river. For many of the regionâs inhabitants, the canal will be a lifeline, the chance of a future and source of hope. But for those living on the canalâs direct course, it means only requisitions, departure and loss. As the fieldtrip progresses, it seems that JosÃÃ,© Renato has something in common with the places he visits: emptiness, a sense of abandonment and isolation. Like an astronaut who has travelled in outer space, or a sailor who has crossed the oceans, for JosÃÃ,© Renato, nothing will ever be the same again.
