Fogaréu – film screening
October 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us for the Canadian premiere of the Brazilian film Fogaréu, a narrative feature film by director Flavia Neves. There will be a Q&A after the screening on October 7.
In her debut feature, “Fogaréu,” director Flávia Neves interweaves the broader impact of colonialism in Brazil with a close-up tale of insidious goings on in Goiás, her hometown in central Brazil. Having gained support from the CNC’s Aide Aux Cinemas du Monde, “Fogaréu” is an accomplished first film that offers a nuanced critique of power dynamics within a bold, cinematic thriller framework. The film screens in the Panorama section of the Berlin Film Festival. – Caitlin Quinlan, Variety, 2-16-2022
