Found Memories (Historias Que So Existem Quando)

This finely paced film has framed over 27 awards and was the official selection of more than 40 festivals around the globe. In a fictional town in Brazil where coffee plantations flourished in the 1800s, Rita, a young wandering photographer, comes to understand life in a community where time has stood still and people’s traditional roles clash with modern society. The film’s original title, “Stories That Only Exist When Remembered,” beautifully expresses the theme of Murat’s poetic rendering of the fictive Jotuomba, its inhabitants affectionately wedded to the rituals and land that contain the memories of their lives. Rita’s stay occasions a confluence of generations and cultures that seem to grow organically out of the setting in this extraordinarily accomplished and mature first feature. -
