The spring film series will seek to broaden and diversify the often sensationalist representations of urban life in Brazil’s two mega-metropoli: Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

De passagem (Passing By) is a 2003 film about the return of Jefferson, who has joined the military, to his old neighborhood in São Paulo after his brother Washington dies and his body disappears.
