Cast: Adriano Carvalho, Luana Nastas, Sandra Corveloni On an isolated estate in the densely overgrown mountains of 19th century Brazil, two young women live under the thumb of a slave trader. Photographed in stunning black-and-white, this atmospheric vision of colonialist rot recalls the work of Joseph Conrad. This consummate mood piece is the first solo feature by Daniela Thomas, a longtime collaborator of Walter Salles (Central Station, The Motorcycle Diaries).
