Back to Maracanã
Directed by Jorge Gurvich
Brazil-Israel-Germany | 92 minutes | 2019
Portuguese and Hebrew with English subtitles
This touching and fun multigenerational comedy follows a Brazilian expat living in Israel who finds himself on an unexpected and eventful trip to Brazil for the World Cup. In this spirited film, a divorced Israeli dad embarks on a wild journey with his Brazilian father, a rabid soccer fan, and his disinterested 11-year old son. In the course of their sometimes-calamitous journey, they come to a new understanding of one another as long-buried secrets are revealed. Back to Maracanã is a heartfelt and humorous film featuring three generations of men trying to understand one another and come to terms with lives that aren’t going quite as they had hoped.
Director Jorge Gurvich will be in attendance to introduce the film and participate in an extended conversation with the audience afterward.
