Casa Grande

Part of O Brazil: Contemporary Brazilian Cinema
Saturday, December 6, 2014, 7:00 p.m.

With writer/editor Karen Sztajnberg in person 

Dir. Fellipe Barbosa. 2014, 114mins. DCP. In Portuguese with English subtitles. With Marcello Novaes, Suzana Pires, and Thales Cavalcanti. Seventeen-year-old Jean strives to escape his privileged life within Rio's social elite. Though Barbosa's beautifully written feature debut is very personal, telling the story of his family's spiral into bankruptcy, it also boldly explores class difference and racism, an urgent though still new conversation in Brazil today.
