AVANTI POPOLO

Michael WAHRMANN

french premiere


Brazil, 2012, 72’

Despite the title, the action is set in Brazil. A son returns to the abode of his father, who lives in a state of prostration with his dog in a dusty apartment filled with souvenirs. Memories of a second son who went to study in Russia in the 1970s and who disappeared on returning to his native country. André Gatti and Carlos Reichenbach (a great filmmaker recently deceased) act in this political comedy which deals with the memory of the years of dictatorship. How should it be treated? Erase it, suffer it, ruminate on it, transform it into aesthetic material?
