 Daughters of the Wind

Dir: Joel Zito Araújo/Feature/Brazil/Portuguese with English Subtitles/83 min/2004

With an impressive cast of the best Afro-Brazilian actors, Daughters of the Wind chronicles the lives of a family from Northeastern Brazil in a film inspired by the popular Latin-American telenovelas.

The story follows the complex relationship between a set of sisters, mothers, and daughters; a family funeral serves as a starting point for a series of flashbacks from the 1960s and ’70s. Though general sexism and gender stereotyping are among the causes for the tension between them, the social and political remnants of slavery present an even more insidious conflict to be dealt with.

Please be advised: This film contains sexual content that may not be suitable for children.
