The King of Carimã (2009)

On the day of the memorial of Tata Amaral’s mother, the filmmaker’s uncle tells her a surprising story: during his youth, her father was a rich man, had a problem whose causes are unknown and ran away to the state of Mato Grosso, in the midwest of Brazil. The filmmaker then sets out to investigate her father’s past, during the 1940s and the 1950s, and ends up discovering a family secret.
