Spring 2015 Film Series -De Passagem (Passing By)

Thursday, February 26, 2015

7:00pm – 9:00pm

Joukowsky Forum, Watson Institute, 111 Thayer Street.

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" 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.
