The Invisible Life of Eurídice Gusmao

Directed by Karim Aïnouz

Rio de Janeiro, 1950. Eurídice, 18, and Guida, 20, are two inseparable sisters living at home with their conservative parents. Although immersed in a traditional life, each one nourishes a dream: Eurídice of becoming a renowned pianist, Guida of finding true love. In a dramatic turn, they are separated by their father and forced to live apart. They take control of their separate destinies, while never giving up hope of finding each other.

Winner of the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes Film Festival, the film signals a return to filmmaking from one of the great figures in contemporary Brazilian cinema.
