Iremar works the vaquejadas, a traditional sport similar to rodeo from the rural northeast of Brazil and Brazil’s second highest grossing sport after soccer. He and his co-workers live in the truck used to transport the animals, forming a makeshift, but close-knit family. But the country and region are changing and the area’s booming clothing industry has Iremar dreaming of becoming a fashion designer. A wild and sexy ride of a film! Winner at both the Venice Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival. Part of our spotlight on Brazil, host of the 2016 Summer Olympics. Contains several graphic sex scenes.

 

Speaker: Dario Borim, Professor of Portuguese at UMass-Dartmouth, who teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in Luso-Brazilian literature, cinema, theater, and music.
