CASA GRANDE Trailer: Brazilian Teenage Angst, Opening This Week
Fellipe Barbosa's outstanding debut, Casa Grande, is finally getting its release in Brazil and that is definitely something to celebrate.
A slow-burning, very personal and assured first feature, and a selection of the Rotterdam international film festival, Casa Grande pushes a lot of buttons and makes a strong case about teenage angst while cleverly portraying a turmoiled, socially crumbling Brazil with artistic honesty and great sensibility. Barbosa is definitely a director to watch.
The film opens theatrically in Brazi this week. Watch the international trailer below.
