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.

Linha de Passe is a 2008 film directed by Walter Salles, the director of Central Station and also Daniela Thomas. It focuses on the lives and fragmented aspirations of the members of a family living on the periphery of São Paulo.
