Absence (Ausencia)


Dir. Chico Teixeira. 2015, 88 mins. DCP. New York premiere. A festival favorite (including Best Actor and Special Jury Prize winner at the Rio Film Festival), Chico Teixeira’s new feature is a refreshingly honest and touching coming-of-age story about the charismatic 15-year old Serginho. He tackles familial and sexual unrest, and the pressure of social expectations, as he seeks love and the freedom to pursue his dreams.
