A Brazilian documentary, “I Touched all Your Stuff”, will open Friday, August 28th, at Cinema Village. Directed by the duo Maíra Buhler and Matias Mariani, the film narrates the life and the accounts of Christopher Kirk, an American digital technician arrested in Brazil for international drug trafficking. His personal story is also influenced by his travels to Colombia, where he lived after reading an article about hippos, written by the famous drug cartel leader, Pablo Escobar; and by a fervorous passion for a mysterious japanese-colombian women. The directors will be at the theatre on the inauguration day to discuss the project with the public.
“I Touched all Your Stuff’” kicks off a Brazilian Film Series that will show, from August to December, a selection of promising and acclaimed productions that reveal important aspects of Brazil’s contemporary history. The thoughtful project is the result of a partnership between the New York based Brazilian company, Cinema Slate, and Cinema Tropical, the leading distributor of Latin-american films in the US.
