VAZANTE

By Daniela Thomas

Diamantina Mountains, Brazil, 1821. Antonio, a slave trader, returns to the decadent but imposing farmhouse he inherited to discover his wife has died in child birth. Confined to this desolate property in the company of his demented mother-in-law and numerous slaves, he marries Beatriz, his dead wife's niece and 12-year-old child. A restless soul, he returns to his trading expeditions and leaves his child wife behind. The loneliness of the big house in the rugged landscape mirrors that of its inhabitants. Each one has been displaced from their original homes and forced into co-existence. The undercurrents of violence and prejudice that continue to plague today’s Brazil accelerate the inevitable tragedy and herald the tides of change. Co-presented by : Festival Portugal International de Montreal
