Aquarius tells the story of Clara, a 65-year-old widow who is holding on to her apartment against developer pressures. According to a review by “Variety” magazine, “Aquarius is a character study as well as a shrewd meditation on the needless transience of place and the way physical space elides with our identity.”


Bacurau, also directed by Kleber Mendonça Filho, centers around a small settlement in Brazil’s remote backcountry, which suddenly disappears from satellite maps and comes under threat from an unknown enemy. From that moment onwards, Bacurau braces itself for a brutal fight for survival.Brazilian Film Festival
