As part of the Festival de Cultura Brasileña, Cinemes Girona will screen six films that explore the theme of crisis, whether social or political, reflecting the everyday conflicts of men and women in contemporary Brazil. The collection includes a combination of fictional films and documentaries, each one portraying life in a different region to create an overall sense of the nation’s vast cultural identity. The series includes Boi Neon (2015), which explores the life of Iremar, a bull handler with dreams of becoming a fashion designer. Directed by Gabriel Mascaro, the film confronts traditional Brazilian conventions of masculinity and reflects a society demanding change. The lineup also includes Campo Grande (2015), the story of two impoverished children abandoned by their mother in an upscale neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro, and Orestes (2015), a harrowing documentary film about the lack of justice in São Paulo. Also featured is Anita Rocha da Silveira's film, Mata-me por Favor (2015) which follows 15-year-old Bia, after her neighbourhood is hit by a wave of violent murders. Ressurgentes (2014) and Para Minha Amada Morta (2015) will also be screened. Entrance for one film is €5 and €20 for all films.
