The idea behind the festival is a rigorous selection and presentation of the best films from outside of the so-called Western World. During this year's 8th edition of the festival, taking place in few Polish cities between 22nd November and 3rd December 2012, the organizers - the movie channel ALE KINO and Mañana - invite public for a cinematic expedition to Brazil, a fascinating country that in recent years is growing into a global power, both economically and culturally. The program includes four very different films, showing great richness of the local film industry:
THE CLAUN (O Palhaço) dir. Selton Mello – Brazilian candidate for an Oscar in 2013;
ONCE UPONA TIME WAS I, VERONICA (Era uma vez eu, Verônica) dir. Marcelo Gomes
NEIGHBORING SOUNDS (O som ao redor) dir. Kleber Mendonça Filho
XINGU (Xingu) dir. Cao Hamburger
In addition to Brazil there will be also movies from countries such as Mexico, Morocco, Argentina, Colombia, Philippines, Israel and China, creating a unique set of films previously appreciated at prestigious festivals in Toronto, Venice, Cannes or San Sebastian.
