Found Memories (Histórias Que Só Existem Quando Lembradas): Trailer

Set in a remote area of Brazil where coffee plantations flourished in the 1800s, this finely calibrated film follows Rita, a young, wandering photographer, as she comes to understand life in a community where time has seemingly stood still and peoples traditional roles clash with modern society. The films original title, which translates as Stories That Only Exist When Remembered, beautifully expresses the theme of Murats poetic rendering of the fictive Jotuomba, its inhabitants affectionately wedded to the rituals and land that contain the memories of their lives. Ritas visit occasions a confluence of generations and cultures that seem to grow organically out of the setting in this extraordinarily accomplished and mature first feature.
