World Movie: Found Memories (Brazil)

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Petty Auditorium

Time seems to have stopped in the ghost town of Jotuomba, Brazil. Every day Madalena follows the same routine. She makes bread for the coffee shop, walks across the abandoned train tracks, neatens the flowers in front of the locked cemetery gates, attends an afternoon church sermon, and lunches with other older villagers. Then unexpectedly, a young photographer named Rita arrives in the village and asks Madalena if she can stay with her for a few days. The two women form a deep connection, which has a profound effect on both of them and the rest of the townspeople. Released 2011 - 98 minutes - Not rated - In Portuguese with English subtitles
