Distant Parallels curator Ana Luisa Beraba in person!

One weekend, friends Hilda, Matilda and Gaspar meet up in a run-down old house in the heart of Rio de Janeiro. They drink, fool around, seek out pleasurable experiences and completely break out of the monotony of their daily routines. Introducing the film will be curator and Rio de Janeiro native Ana Luiza Beraba, who has coordinated the Rio International Film Festival since 2003. Beraba studied at the Escuela Internacional de Cine y Television in Cuba and recently completed a book examining the interconnectedness of art communities across Brazil and Latin America during WWII. This program is part of the second edition of The Nineteenth Step series which presents Distant Parallels: Views of Sexuality and Gender from Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico, four countries whose recent cinematic offerings are dealing with this subject in exciting and eye-opening ways. Co-presented with The Nineteenth Step. 2004, Júlio Bressane, Brazil, 90 min, 35mm.
