A história da eternidade

The inhabitants of a scorchingly hot, dusty village in the Brazilian outback have great expectations. Alfonsina's quinceañera (a milestone 15th birthday celebration) is approaching, granny Aureliana is looking forward to a visit from her grandson and the deeply sad Querencia enjoys a daily serenade.
The History of Eternity dreamily sketches the intense relationships of three passionate women with their fathers, brothers and fellow villagers. Around the village square, where the telephone box and the communal television set are, they share spicy exotic meals and domestic woes. They expectantly await what tomorrow will bring. Accompanied by melancholy accordion music, a fleeting touch awakens deep-rooted desires.
Director Camilo Cavalcante flirts with the magic-realist imagination that life in the vast expanses of northeastern Brazil virtually demands. This glowing debut film captures the cycle of life in pithy, intuitive moments.
