Saturday, October 13, 2018

12 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Martinos Auditorium, Granoff Center

CineBrasil is an annual film festival that highlights some of the best works in recent Brazilian cinema. CineBrasil this year will include documentaries and feature length films of great artistic quality, some of which are virtually unknown outside of Brazil and touch on subjects such as political protest, queerness and family, labor relations and life in favelas. 

Admittance for the festival is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please arrive on time, even a bit early to secure seating. Note that though many trailers do not have English subtitles, all of the films will be subtitled.

12 p.m. –  Los Leones (The Lions, André Lage, 2017), 79 mins. Trailer.

Los Leones traces, in a realistic and poetic way, the intimate portrait of a marginal Argentinean couple, following, for an entire year, Mariana and Raúl's daily life, revealing the symptoms of Mariana's disease and this loving relationship's singularity.

2:30 p.m. – Corpo Eléctrico (Body Electric, Marcelo Caetano, 2017), 94 mins. Trailer.

The summer is coming and Elias has been dreaming of the sea a lot. In the factory where he works, his responsibilities increase as the holiday season approaches. After one more night working overtime, Elias and the workers decide to go out and have some beer. That is when new encounters and desires open up to his horizons.
