Cláudio Assis at IFFR
Bog of Beasts
Ruthless edge of the life of a young Brazilian girl growing up in a society shaped by violence and sexual abuse. Assis doesn’t leave much doubt about her future and shows Brazil at a moral all-time low.
High-power report of freedom and love on the fringes of tropical Recife. Anarchistic poet Zizo falls for the down-to-earth Eneida, while his friends succumb to sex, drugs and other hedonistic activities. In other words, a colourful black-and-white film, this latest from Tiger Award winner Assis (Bog of Beasts, 2007).
