The acclaimed Brazilian film series “O Brasil” is back at the Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI), running for four consecutive Fridays, from August 19 until September 9. The summer edition features new films by women filmmakers of different generations.
Films include the New York premiere of Vera Egito’s directorial debut, Restless Love, a funny and endearing portrait of twenty-somethings in crisis; California, the former MTV host Marina Person’s debut, a coming-of-age story laced with an evocative 1980s period soundtrack; the U.S. premiere of Campo Grande, the latest work by Rio native Sandra Kogut, whose video art and performance background is evident in her multi-layered fiction feature; and The Second Mother, Ann Muylaert’s intimate drama of a housekeeper torn between her employers and her family, winner of a Special Jury Prize for Acting at Sundance.
