Next Fridays and Saturdays at 7.30pm until the 9th of October, Casa América is screening the film Tres veranos (Three Summers), directed in 2019 by Sandra Kogut, and starring Regina Casé, Rogério Fróes and Otávio Müller, among others.
Every December, between Christmas and New Year, Edgar and Marta organise a family celebration in their luxurious summer house by the beach. In 2015 everything seems to be fine, despite some tense phone calls. In 2016 the annual party is suddenly cancelled. In 2017, their lives are turned upside down. What happens to those invisible people who live in the orbit of the rich and powerful when these lives collapse? Through the eyes of an employee and a forgotten elderly father, both victims of the neoliberal nightmare, the film portrays a portrait of contemporary Brazil just before the tragedy of 2018. The signs were all there, but we didn’t know how to read them.
