Behind the Sun

Directed by Walter Salles

From the acclaimed director of CENTRAL STATION, a visually stunning yet spare drama set in scorched-earth rural Brazil of 1910. A poor family of sugarcane farmers and a wealthy clan of landowners are embroiled in an eternal blood feud, perpetuated through the practice of the last assassin always becoming the next victim. Laced with moments of strange visual poetry, the film has been recognised for its stunning cinematography.
