Locarno Festival 2017 - Once Upon a Time In Brasilia

"Two of the more unique and unpredictable films at this year’s Locarno Film Festival came from one nation, Brazil. In the main competition, Marco Dutra and Juliana Rojas’s As Boas Manieras (Good Manners), and in Signs of Life, the festival’s space for more experimental, unclassifiable work, Adirley Queirós’s Era Uma Vez Brasilia (Once It Was Brasilia). Two idiosyncratic films that take unexpected deviations from a genre format, both earned special mentions in their respective competitions but were perhaps too divisive to take the main prize."
