Description

Ballad of Return

(Gustavo Rosa de Moura, Brazil, 2016, 98 minutes, Canadian Premiere)

OFFICIAL TRAILER

Equally frank and electrifying, Gustavo Rosa de Moura's Ballad of Return is an intimate portrait of the toll taken on a marriage by mental illness. Is it ever possible that only the diagnosed experience it? What of the spouses and family members who must learn to live with it? Eduardo (João Miguel) is one of those people. On the day he returns from work to discover that his wife Julia (Marina Person) has attempted suicide, Eduardo is cast adrift. The closer he attempts to get to his wife, the more aggressively he tries to intervene on her depression, the more he suspects he might never really have known her in the first place. Which is naturally unnerving, but not quite as much as Eduardo's creeping suspicion he no longer knows himself.

*Playing with Ophelia (Hollie Olenik, Canada, 2016, 8 minutes)
and Construction Breakdown (Helen Posno, Canada, 2016, 1 minute)
