Films, telling stories that deserve to be listened to, cherished, and remembered.

The month of June will be dedicated to a selection of Brazilian movies spanning the last two decades. While Brazil has steadily held an important position in film festivals around the world, only the occasional production gets the attention it deserves. This program hopes to highlight movies of all shapes and forms that offer a fresh take not only on the reality of Brazil and its people, but on filmmaking itself. Reflecting filmmaking’s own need to tell stories, the movies selected for this month are all centered in characters telling their own tales - be it through letters, diaries, or monologues. We all have a story to tell, and these films have stories that deserve to be listened to, cherished, and remembered.
The program is in collaboration with the Brazilian curator Francisco Vergueiro Martins Fontes, who will introduce the films.
All films are in Portugese with English subtitles.

Central Station (Walter Salles, 1998)
In Walter Salles’ game-changing film, Dora is a retired schoolteacher who works at Rio de Janeiro’s central train station writing letters for those who can’t read or write. After the sudden death of one of her clients, she decides to help the woman’s child, Josué, to find the father he’s never met. Emotional and heart-wrenching, the film was not only nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards, but gave Fernanda Montenegro a well deserved nomination for Best Actress. Regarded as one of the best films in Brazil’s history, it is a timeless tale of an unusual friendship.

De filmprogrammering in De Nieuwe Regentes is mogelijk gemaakt met hulp van Fonds 1818.
