About the Event

Desert (Deserto)

Directed by Guilherme Weber

(Brazil, 104 minutes, 2017)

A small group of artists travels around the Brazilian backlands presenting a show. Arriving in a small village, they discover an abandoned city, houses, church and a fountain that spouts clean water like a miracle. Tired and shaken from their wandering life, the artists decide to settle in the village and found a new community, giving themselves different roles from those they have played for a lifetime. This new configuration, however, will reveal to these artists the worst vices of civil life.
