O Brasil: Contemporary Brazilian Cinema


O Brasil 's summer edition features new films by women filmmakers of different generations. Films include the New York premiere of Vera Egito's directorial debut, Restless Love, a funny and endearing portrait of twenty-somethings in crisis; California, the former MTV host Marina Person's debut, a coming-of-age story laced with an evocative 1990s period soundtrack; the U.S. premiere of Campo Grande, the latest work by Rio native Sandra Kogut, whose video art and performance background is evident in her multi-layered fiction feature; and The Second Mother, Ann Muylaert’s intimate drama of a housekeeper torn between her employers and her family, winner of a Special Jury Prize for Acting at Sundance.
