Coffee with Cinnamon


Location: Bartos Screening Room

Introduced by Ela Bittencourt

Dirs. Glenda Nicácio, Ary Rosa. 2017, 102 mins. In Portuguese with English subtitles. Widely discussed and praised in Brazil for its compassionate presentation of a black Brazilian middle-class rarely portrayed on the big screen, Coffee With Cinnamon was also the first feature co-directed by a black Brazilian woman (Nicácio). Young Violeta cannot shake off a desire to help her grieving former teacher, while one of her neighbors also suffers an irredeemable loss. Set in Salvador, Bahia, this gentle, multilayered story about a tightly knit neighborhood coming together ranges from understated realism tinged with humor to the edge of horror.
