Pacarrete, a former ballet dancer who lives in northeast Brazil, decides to dust off her tutu slip and her ballet slippers to perform a classic dance for her city’s 200th anniversay celebration. A poignant debut feature from Allan Deberton, this broad comedy turns increasingly contemplative as the true nature of Pacarrete’s daily life becomes apparent.
“…it is a film that bears watching to the end, if nothing else for [Marcelia] Cartaxo’s extraordinary ability to be fascinating and liberating, whatever her state of mind… batty but utterly understandable heroine.” (Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter)
Pacarrete is available all of the festival week.
