“Ausência” (Absence) at the Gramado Festival “Ausência” (Absence) at the Gramado Festival

Directed by Chico Teixeira, the motion picture named “Ausência” was selected to take part of the Gramado Festival’s 43rd edition; one of the most important festivals dedicated to Brazilian cinema, and competes against other seven Brazilian movies. The award will be given between August 7th and 15th, in the city of Gramado, located in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul.

The plot is about the journey of young Serginho, whom, at the age of 15, seeks a place to dwell in a world that made him grow up before his time. The circumstances made him the man of the house, fully responsible for his mother and little brother. In a moment of transition, he misses true love, career perspectives, and caring. He endeavors to make up for so many absences and almost succeeds on it. Until there is a time when the boundaries are crossed. Serginho craves more from his friends, country, leaders, Professor Ney, and his future.

The motion picture will be released on the second semester of 2015 as a partnership with the Imovision distributor.

“Sintonizah” at In-Edit Brasil “Sintonizah” at In-Edit Brasil

Directed by Lecuk Ishida and Willy Biondani, the documentary film “Sintonizah”, which shows the power of reggae in the transformation of culture in the state of Maranhão, in Brazil, and its connections without borders with Jamaica, was chosen to be shown at In-Edit Brasil 2015.

The film takes the spectators to the roots of the genre, which slipped in São Luís, Maranhão, to experience the local culture, answering to issues about the strength of its identity in different populations.

The discovery on this musical trip is tailored by the declarations of Stranjah (Alex Herbst), a rare discs negotiator and researcher in the film, by iconic musicians Stranger Cole and Lone Ranger, who guided the team through the most relevant spots in the reggae scene, such as the visit to Studio One for a chat with owner Courtney Dodd, in the place where idols in the genre, such as Bob Marley and the Wailers, produced their discs.

“Sintonizah” was chosen to be shown at In-Edit Brasil, the first festival exclusively dedicated to documentaries in the musical genre in the country. The main event takes place in São Paulo, followed by itinerant editions happening in cities like Rio de Janeiro and Salvador.

The festival takes place in the city of São Paulo from July 1st to 12th, and the screening of Sintonizah will happen in two sessions: on Friday, July 3rd, at 8:30 p.m., at Matilha Cultural – followed by a talk with the directors; and on Wednesday, July 8th, at 3 p.m., at Cinesesc.
