Description

Enjoy a Brazilian film screening of 'O Ano em Que Meus Pais Saíram de Férias' (The Year my Parents went on Holiday). Hosted by Anneliese Hatton, Modern Foreign Languages.

Storyline: The year is 1970, and Mauro (Michel Joelsas) is taken to live with his grandfather while his mother and father flee the politically repressive Brazilian regime. As the nation prepares to watch their team compete in the soccer World Cup, Mauro anticipates the return of his parents. When his grandfather dies suddenly, he is set adrift and befriends the characters who live in the surrounding Jewish neighborhood, all the while anxiously awaiting news of his parents' fate. Released in 2006 and directed by Cao Hamburger.
