From Tuesday 4 to Saturday 21 December, Casa América screens again two notable titles of Brazilian cinema, Doña Clara and Siempre juntos, brilliantly interpreted by Sonia Braga and Karine Teles. In both, the woman is the protagonist. And, although the stories are very different, some links could be established that connect them in their vital struggle.
In Siempre juntos (Always together), on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, Irene lives with her family in a house that is falling apart. His eldest son, Fernando, is the star of the local handball team. When a scout recruits him to become a professional player in Germany, the family has a few days to prepare their departure and leave. In Doña Clara, an important promoter has bought all the apartments in the biulding where Doña Clara resides, but she refuses to sell his own and embarks on a cold war against the company that harasses her.
