Mutum

Miami Beach Cinematheque. July 22nd, 2009. 8:30 p.m.

Global Lens in collaboration with The Global Film Initiative presents the Miami Theatrical Premiere of the Brazilian film Mutum, directed by Sandra Kogut in 2007 and featuring Thiago Da Silva Mariz, Wallison Felipe Leal Barroso and João Miguel, among others.

Thiago is a sensitive and imaginative boy living on a small, hardscrabble farm in a remote region of Brazil. His life is filled not only with curiosity and youthful discovery, but also the reality of his parent’s unhappy marriage and his father’s abuse – all of which are one day changed by a chance encounter and unexpected gift. Director Sandra Kogut, in her poetic adaptation of the Brazilian short story Campo Geral, focuses on minute details of rural life to tell a bittersweet story of one boy’s coming-of-age amidst events both great and small.
