Spring 2015 Film Series -Linha de Passe

Thursday, February 5, 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. 

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.
