Cine las Americas: SANGUE DO MEU SANGUE
|Starring||Rafael Morais, Rita Blanco and Anabela Moreira|
In his seventh feature film, director João Canijo recreates an epic story through the devoted and cautious observation of physical space and of interpersonal relationships. He succeeds in evoking a tridimensional universe, stylized but anchored in a detailed and sober realism that allows for a profound connection with human emotions.
The excellent interpretation by Rita Blanco takes the spectator by the hand through a situation where most of us adults have found ourselves: the moment when a family has to act and recognize its condition, understand the actions of its members and their individual lives, and confront destiny as a family.
The detailed mise-en-scène, outstanding sound design, and strong, delicate, profound and complex performances of the entire cast, are the result of a two year process, in which the director and his team rehearsed and worked the characters and the story.
The resulting film is complex and multi-textured, richly crafted and capable of unveiling flashes of humanity amid the dramas and tragedies that weave through the everyday lives of its characters.
Tickets are $8 for Members / $10 for General Admission
