Director: João Paulo Miranda Maria | Cast: Antonio Pitanga, Ana Flavia Cavalcanti, Sam Louwyck Cannes Official Selection 2020, NR | Portuguese & German with English subtitles

In this audacious debut feature, João Paulo Miranda Maria conjures a nightmarish image of the racial and social rifts in modern day Brazil. Cristovam, an Indigenous Black man from the rural North, moves to an industrialized Southern town populated by the descendants of Austrian ex-pats to work in a milk factory. Immediately confronted with their virulent racism, he becomes estranged from the white world. Upon discovering an abandoned house filled with objects reminding him of his origins, Cristovam begins a spiritual and physical metamorphosis. “What’s most remarkable about Memory House is not just its boldness but its beauty.” —Manuel Betancourt, Variety
