Director: Tiago Campos Torres, 2013, Brazil, 85 min.

This month’s Second Sunday Culture Film screening focuses on a conversation about two opposing archives; the legacies of Mestre the priest, an eccentric amateur filmmaker, and Divino, a talented young Xavante filmmaker—two men who trade perspectives on 40 years in a village in Mato Grosso, Brazil. Presented by Mércia Santana Flannery of Penn Cinema Studies; sponsored by the Wolf Humanities Center, Penn Cinema and Media Studies, and Latin American and Latino Studies at Penn.

Free with Museum admission.
