August Winds (Ventos de Agosto)
Dir. Gabriel Mascaro. Brazil, 2014, 77 mins. New York City premiere. Two young lovers—a young man who dives for seafood and a woman who dreams of being a tattoo artist—live a tranquil life in a remote coastal village, until a corpse washes up on shore during a tropical storm. Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Mascaro’s first foray into fiction is sensual and stunningly photographed by the director.
