BEST ADIFF FILM SERIES - Part III: Daughters of the Wind
SUNDAY, JULY 26 @ 3 PM
DAUGHTERS OF THE WIND (FILHAS DO VENTO)
At one point in "Daughters of the Wind," the first fictional feature by the Brazilian documentary maker Joel Zito Araújo, a young black woman, washing her grandfather's hands, tells him a story about how the races of the world came to have skin of different colors. His anger at the racist implications of the tale, which equates dark skin with dirt, takes her by surprise, and her bewilderment and hurt feelings capture this family melodrama's political theme. For much of Brazil's history, its national mythology held that the country did not have a race problem, even as its darker citizens were subjected to routine social and economic discrimination. Mr. Araújo has assembled a multigenerational cast of talented black actors to explore, among other things, the obstacles facing black performers in Brazil's film and television industries. Race may be the film's central theme, but this sexy, sometimes ungainly soap opera also looks at sexual mores, familiar relationships and the cultural differences between urban and rural Brazil.  New York Times' A. O. Scott
Directed by Joel Zito Araújo, 2004, Brazil, 83 mins., Drama, Portuguese with English Subtitles
