SYNOPSIS

The small village of Toritama is a microcosm of relentless capitalism. Each year, more than 20-million pairs of jeans are produced in make-shift factories. The locals work non-stop hours, proud to be the masters of their own time. During Carnival – the only leisure moment of the year -, they transgress the logic of accumulation of goods, sell their belongings without regret and flee to the beaches in search of ephemeral happiness. When Ash Wednesday arrives, a new work cycle begins.

DIRECTOR

Marcelo Gomes was born on October 28, 1963 in Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil. He is a writer and director, known for Cinema, Aspirins and Vultures (2005), I Travel Because I Have to, I Come Back Because I Love You (2009) and O Homem das Multidões (2013).
