The Center for Latin American and Carribbean Studies is proud to support The Cinema Tropical Collection's online online premiere of Your Bones and Your Eyes/ Seus Osso e Seus Olhos (2019), a film by Caetano Gotardo, as part of the series “Veredas: A Generation of Brazilian Filmmakers,”. Curated by Mary Jane Marcasiano and Fábio Andrade, and presented by Film at Lincoln Center, Cinema Tropical and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at NYU.
About the film:
(Brazil, 2019, 118 min. In Portuguese with English subtitles)
“In Caetano Gotardo’s follow-up to The Moving Creatures, João, a middle-class filmmaker living and working in São Paulo, has extensive conversations with friends and strangers, including best friend Irene, who cannot let go of memories of her ex, or a young man he tries to pick up on the metro. Piece by piece, João’s encounters, discussions, and monologues increasingly inspire him, and he begins to reconsider his attitude toward the world around him. In addition to life and love, the creative process emerges as a recurring theme, recalling the films of Éric Rohmer and Hong Sang-soo.” — Film at Lincoln Center
