In her first feature film, Maria Clara Escobar faces up the discoveries and frustrations on accessing the memory of a father and of a time in the Brazilian history that are rarely public. The young filmmaker plunges into this unknown past of her almost unknown father. He, a Brazilian intellectual, imprisoned and tortured during the military dictatorship, is silent about this since that time. A father and a fatherland that does not like to answer any questions, that loves but rarely talks.
A Q&A with Maria Clara Escobar via Skype will follow the screening.

This event is organized by Cristiane Pederiva, Pedro Micheli and CILAVS with the support of the Birkbeck Research in Aesthetics of Kinship and Community (BRAKC).
