Spring 2017 Film Series - Viajo porque preciso, volto porque te amo (I Travel Because I Have To, I Come Back Because I Love You, 2011)

Thursday, April 6, 2017

7:00pm – 9:00pm

Joukowsky Forum, Watson Institute, 111 Thayer Street.

The Brazil Initiative's Spring Film Series presents a selection of classic and contemporary films straight out of "another Brazil": the vast and rich world of the country's backlands. 

A forlorn geologist is sent on a month-long mission into the hinterland of Brazil's Northeast. This remarkable road movie, in which the protagonist never appears onscreen, has both documentary and fiction in its DNA and takes viewers on a journey that is as emotional as it is physical.
