Dreams and Ghost Stories

Sonhos e Histórias de Fantasmas

Directed by Arthur Omar
Brazil, 1996


A quilombo in the hinterland of Minas Gerais, slow-paced, inhabited by old men connected to the old tradition. A funky favela in Rio de Janeiro, fast paced, young, no ties to the past. Community pressure and metaphoric ecstasy in a purely sensorial language.
