Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dirs. Affonso Uchoa and João Dumans. 2017. 98 mins. Digital projection. In Portuguese with English subtitles. With Murilo Caliari and Aristides de Sousa. Andre (Murilo Caliari), a teenager, lives in an industrial town in Brazil near an old aluminum factory. One day, a factory worker, Cristiano (Aristides de Sousa), suffers an accident. Asked to go to Cristiano’s house to pick up clothes and documents, Andre stumbles upon a notebook, and it’s here that Araby begins—or, rather, transforms. As Andre reads from the journal entries, we are plunged into Cristiano’s life, into stories of his wanderings, adventures, and loves. “An instant classic… Marked by boundless humanism” (Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter) and beautifully written and filmed, Araby is a fable-like road movie about a young man who sets off on a twenty-year journey in search of a better life.
