Daughter of the Wind (Brazil)
Daughter of the Wind (Brazil). Portuguese with English subtitles; 90 minutes. Director: Joel Zito Araujo. Assembling the largest cast of Black actors ever seen in a Brazilian film, this first fiction feature film by acclaimed documentarian Araujo is a moving and complex story about redemption between sisters, mothers, and daughters.
The film tells the stories of the female protagonists, starting at a funeral in the present and traversing back and forth between contemporary time and the 1960s and 1970s. The film touches upon themes pertinent to women everywhere, but in small-town Brazil the ghosts of slavery and racism linger and affect the characters' lives in subtle ways. In a brilliant piece of political and social storytelling, the filmmaker substitutes the stereotypical roles usually played by Black actors in Brazil's most popular medium, the soap opera, for full, multifaceted characterizations-even as he cleverly employs many of the telenovela's methods of communicating to wide audiences. (Excerpted from the Museum of Modern Art Premiere Brazil! Program).
Please stay for a festive closing reception (coffee & dessert / wine & cheese).
