Official Section 2011: Girimunho

“In Girimunho time seems to stop in spite of its constant movement. In the midst of the Sertão landscape, oneiric occurrences populate the imagination of its people and blend with the prosaic situations in our characters’ lives. Our desire is to portray the Sertão in a subjective and profound way, taking reality as the beginning of everything. These characters are real people living in São Romão. Their stories are part of their memories; their homes are the film locations, without being interfered with by art, because everything was already there, ready to be filmed, entirely maintaining the authenticity. The people that inspired us to make this film played themselves.” (Helvécio Marins Jr., Clarissa Campolina)

Girimunho screens in competition at l’Alternativa on Monday 14th & Friday 18th November 2011
Helvécio Marins Jr. will introduce the screening on 18th November
