Three Summers

Saturday 2 November

21:15 - 22:49 Trianon 3

For years, the energetic and cheerful Madá has worked as a caretaker for a cluster of luxury beachside condos owned by a wealthy Rio de Janeiro family. Unfolding over the course of three consecutive summers — 2015 to 2017 — the film follows Madá as she invests in a roadside snack kiosk while tending to the every need of her condescending employers, becomes a bystander in a major money-laundering scandal, and eventually launches a whole new career. With every dizzying new turn of events, Madá manages to retain her high spirits, her sense of loyalty to those who deserve it — and her eagle eye for opportunity. Fun, entertaining and a sharp perspective on contemporary Brazil, Sandra Kogut has created an inventive episodic feature, and we’re very pleased that she’ll be attending the festival to support the film.
