Solberg’s first fiction feature Diary of a Provincial Girl (Vida de menina, 2004) is based on the memoirs of a young woman at the end of the nineteenth century as Brazil underwent profound transformation with the end of the monarchy and abolition of slavery. The protagonist is a rebellious and defiant character, as Solberg often depicts them.
The poetic Noon (Meio-dia, 1970), the filmmakers’ first fiction short film, portrays the uprising of a group of children on a day at school. Both films convey a strong atmosphere of rebellion and non-conformity against the established powers, no small feat in a country amidst a civilian-military dictatorship.
The screening will be introduced by Helena Solberg.
