Brazil/Germany/Spain 2011, 90’- 35mm
An 81-year-old woman loves dancing until dawn to her neighbor’s drum rhythms in a moving depiction of life and friendship, at a small village in the arid region of Minas Gerais. When her husband dies, she is suddenly forced to rethink her life and her routine. Non-professional actors and a loose framework of improvised scenes brings a documentary feel to this moving and magical story.
