I Touched All Your Stuff (A Vida Privada dos Hipopótamos)
With directors Maíra Bühler and Matias Mariani in person
Dirs. Maíra Bühler, Matias Mariani. Brazil, 2014, 89 mins. DCP. New York premiere. Chris Kirk, an affable and seemingly gullible American man in a Brazilian jail for drug trafficking, recounts his jaw-dropping saga—a romance with an alluring and elusive Japanese-Colombian woman that went remarkably wrong. This riveting tale of obsession and deception, filled with images, emails, and video from Kirk’s computer is an offbeat, provocative documentary for the Internet age. Preceded by Einschnitte (Dir. Lina Rodriguez. Canada, 2013, 4 mins.) A Super-8 study of Viennese statues, revealing how history haunts modern Austria.
