Panorama - Against the Grain

Sofia Foi Pedro Geraldo

Forced to leave where she stayed, Sofia is now homeless. The young woman spends her days wandering the alleys of the University of São Paulo campus, where she offers her services as a tattoo artist. Over the course of one strange night, her wanderings mingle with memories of an unfulfilled love. Wrapped in a dark, melancholy atmosphere, the film contemplates the fragility of lost youth. The narrative blurs the lines separating the life of the inscrutable fictional Sofia with that of the actress of the same name who portrays her. Like an enigmatic oracle, the original Portuguese title evokes the impermanence and ambiguity that haunt Sofia. She is carried away by perpetual motion, her future forever unknown. (AAM)
