Found Memories

Saturday 23rd February 2:30 PM


The rhythm of the life of a village. Found Memories draws the viewer into the rhythm - from predawn bread baking to prickly interactions to post-squabble coffee and mass - so that when a young woman appears on Madalena's doorstep, she seems to have entered this suspended world along with us. Rita (Lisa E. Fávero) is a backpacking photographer in search of aesthetic bliss. Initially treated like the parasite she appears to be, over the course of this crisp, gracefully inflected meditation on time's passage, Rita develops the interest in her subjects that turns an image into more than stolen light.

“Brazilian filmmaker Júlia Murat's first narrative feature is a slow-build marvel.”
