Dir. Denize Galiao - 2019 - Germany
An old brazilian legend says that 'Saudade' was created by the African gods, that the enslaved people don’t forget their beloved ones and where they come from. Triggered by the disease of her father, the afro Brazilian directress Denize Galiao explores her deepest feelings for her home and her roots which she does not want to lose after 20 years of living in Germany. The word 'Saudade' which cannot be translated into any other language is the red line through the story of a family that lives between two different cultures.
