Brazil, United States | 2012 | Petra Costa
In this lavishly praised new film, a Brazilian actress goes to NYC to discover what happened to her older sister Elena, who left Brazil for New York two decades earlier to become a dancer and movie star. Incorporating interviews, letters, diary entries, and rare video clips, this dreamy film is a delicate inquiry into one family's most intimate memories, secrets, and sorrows. "An elegiac cinematic essay that is both haunting and unforgettable." -The Hollywood Reporter.
