“A lively neorealist vibe that’s utterly involving, the characters are so vividly drawn”

Set in São Paulo, Cleuza (played by Sandra Corveloni who won Best Actress at Cannes for this performance), is a single mother who works in the apartment of a middle-class family. The film narrates the experiences of her four sons as they struggle to make their way in the world from their poverty-stricken beginnings.

In Portugese with English subtitles.

The Child in Spanish and Latin American Cinema

After the success of last year’s Pedro Almodóvar Day held in collaboration with Exeter University, we are very pleased to announce a special day of Spanish language films. We are showing three films that showcase the child protagonist in films from Spain and Latin America.

Presented in collaboration with the Departments of Modern Languages and Film Studies at the University of Exeter, the films will be introduced by Professor Sally Faulkner (Head of Modern Languages and Professor of Hispanic Studies), Dr Natalia Pinazza (Lecturer in Portuguese Studies at the University of Exeter), and Rachel Beaney (PGR student at the University of Exeter).

There will be a Q&A following each screening. All screenings have English subtitles.
