The Gate Cinema


Drama | Historical | Female Director | Mortality

Brazil, 1921. Wealthy slave-owner Antonio (Adriano Carvalho) lives a lonely, isolated life, tending to his cattle and finding little connection with the people around him. In need of companionship, he marries his late wife’s niece, 12-year-old Beatriz (Luana Nastas), though his desires for slave Feliciana (Jai Baptista) cannot be suppressed. Precociously, Beatriz looks to define her role on the estate, finding herself drawn to Feliciana’s son, Virgilio (Vinicius Dos Anjos). Beautifully photographed in black and white, the solo feature directorial debut from Walter Salles collaborator Daniela Thomas is a disarming, provocative period piece addressing issues of race, class and gender politics.
