Sudoeste is the first full-length feature film by the Brazilian Eduardo Nunes. Some art critics associate black-and-white landscapes with films of a Hungarian metaphysicist Bela Tarra, others – with films by Tarkovsky. Nunes deconstructs life of the main heroine Klarisa. She is pregnant and in the morning she dies in a hotel. Then she is revived as a baby, later as a little girl, a teenager and finally as an adult woman. Christian and mythological allusions are woven into these mosaic transformations.
The director will attend the Russian premier.
Screened at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in 2012.
