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.

I Travel Because I Have To, I Come Back Because I Love You (Karim Aïnouz & Marcelo Gomes, 2009)
An experiment of editing and storytelling, I Travel Because I Have To, I Come Back Because I Love You tells the story of José Renato, a geologist who is sent for work to an isolated region in the Northeast of Brazil. Entirely narrated in first person, it is an incredible feat of filmmaking that mixes documentary and fiction to show Brazil through the eyes of a man who soon starts to miss his wife and life back home. Mixing 8mm, 16mm, and digital footage gathered originally for a documentary, the directors transform it into an experimental road movie. Innovative and unique in its form and style, it is a film that refuses to be forgotten.

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