Dir. Marina Person. 2015, 91 mins. Digital projection. In Portuguese with English subtitles. In her vibrant debut feature, Person—an actress, renowned TV personality, and MTV host for eighteen years—sets her nostalgic coming-of-age story in 1984, a pivotal moment in Brazilian history. As the country prepares to face the end of two decades of military dictatorship and the world is struggling with the incipient AIDS epidemic, Estela’s plans to visit her beloved uncle in California are derailed by his unexpected return to Brazil. The film features an evocative period soundtrack by The Cure, David Bowie, New Order, Joy Divison, Cocteau Twins, and Siouxsie and the Banshees.
