O Barco

A woman with 26 children in an isolated fishing village faces new challenges when a shipwreck survivor arrives.


Why watch this film?

Petrus Cariry is one of the most interesting and differentiated filmmakers of current Brazilian cinema, with titles in his resume such as 'Mother and Daughter' and 'Clarisse or Something About Us Two'. Now, in 'The Boat', Cariry dives deep into a fanciful experimentalism to tell the story of dona Esmerina, a woman who has 26 children, each one called by a letter of the alphabet. Their lives are disturbed when the firstborn expresses the desire to leave to explore the world beyond their village. This atmosphere of turbulence increases with the arrival of a stranger who survived a shipwreck. From then on, 'The Boat' takes on metaphorical, daring and sometimes disturbing tones, playing with language. To get out of comfort. Winner of awards at Cine Ceará.
