Description:
Joao Paulo Miranda Maria’s first full-length film melds past and present, realism and fantasy, to offer a mesmerising symbolic and political immersion into the Brazilian collective subconscious.

Modern day Brazil, but lost in time. Cristovam, an indigenous man from the rural north, moves to a southern town, a strange sort of Austrian colony, to work in a milk factory. Confronted with xenophobic conservative people, he feels isolated and estranged from the white world. He discovers an abandoned house, filled with objects and memorabilia reminding him of his origins. He settles in, reconnecting with his roots. As if this memory house were alive, more objects start to appear. Slowly, Cristovam begins a metamorphosis.

“The film portrays the revolutionary figure of the Northern man who incarnates the spirit of the “Boiadeiro” (Brazilian cowboy). Cristovam seeks revenge to exculpate his sins as he feels responsible for the intolerant society. Through the abandoned house, he connects with his remote past, to animals and his deity, and transforms into both a bull and a cowboy. He is empowered to make his final, great gesture.” (Joao Paulo Miranda Maria)
