In this dreamlike and mysterious tale, a young woman named Clarice gives birth on her deathbed to a baby girl also christened Clarice by the bruxa (or witch) attending the nearly simultaneous moments of death and birth. Spirited away to a remote lakeside village, baby Clarice lives her whole life in the span of twenty-four hours. The film suggests through its vast, black-and-white panoramas that even so compressed a lifetime remains impossible to fully grasp or contain. In Eduardo Nunes’s debut feature, precious strands of memory, identity and desire add up to a palpable fairytale affirming our place in the ineffable stream of life.

128 minutes | In Portuguese with English subtitles
