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.

Goldie (Slick Woods) is a street-wise, 18-year-old dancer with big dreams of big fame, even as she is stuck at home minding her two sisters while their mother is in jail. When an opportunity to audition for a real music video comes her way, Goldie feels the time has finally come for her star to rise.

Une Colonie
Une Colonie

Winning Best Picture at the Canadian Screen Awards and a Crystal Bear (Berlinale) is no small feat for a feature debut. A Colony is an honest and at times awkward story about coming of age in a small town, subtly set against the background of Canada’s colonialism and indigenous culture. Unique and touching.

LUX: God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunya

Every January, the local priest of a small Macedonian village throws a wooden cross into the river and hundreds of men dive after it. This time, Petrunya dives into the water on a whim and wins. A sympathetic movie with a fierce protagonist.
