Historias Que Solo Existem Cuando Lembradas

IN THE REMOTE Brazilian village of Jotuomba, life goes on as it has for decades. One day a photographer, Rita, arrives looking for a place to stay. At first wary, the villagers soon warm to her. Yet Rita is puzzled: why are there no young people here? And why are the cemetery gates always locked? The title of this film translates as ‘Stories that only exist when remembered’ – the film itself is an unforgettable, moving gem.
