Brazilica Film Festival will begin at Metal on Thursday 18 July with the 2018 drama Rust. Two high-school students Tati and Renet share an instant connection over social media that deepens during a class trip. Rust explores the power and prevalence of social media and technology in the lives of a generation that has never known connection without it.
The Kazimier Stockroom plays host to acclaimed director Miguel Gomes’ black and white drama Tabu on Tuesday 23 July. This moving poetic tale of love and friendship is told through flashbacks which details a love affair between Aurora and Gian-Luca.

Capitães Da Areia tells of the life and adventures of a gang of street kids known as Capitães Da Areia (Captains of the Sands) in Salvador, Bahia, during the 1950’s. Inspired by 1937 novel of the same name, it comes to VideOdyssey on Thursday 25 July.
Closing the show for 2019, the film festival returns to FACT on Tuesday 30 July for Pixote. This movie tells the story of homeless adolescent Pixote who becomes enmeshed in an underworld of drugs and violence.
Brazilica organiser Maeve Morris said: “We have a wonderful variety of films on offer for this year’s festival. Brazilian cinema depicts fascinating stories and lives of its characters and is increasingly attractive to a global audience as well as being such a great medium for exploring Brazil’s culture.
