EIFF is pleased to welcome Flávia Neves to Edinburgh this Summer to present Fogaréu and meet audiences in a post-screening Q&A.

Prodigal daughter Fernanda returns to her small hometown after many years away with the woeful mission of scattering her late mother’s ashes. The visit, innocuous in theory, turns rapidly eerie as the woman senses growingly alarming signs related to her family’s servants. In Flávia Neves’ refreshingly bold and impressively accomplished directorial debut, Brazil’s brutal colonial past is confronted through a vividly realised experiment in genre that blends fact and fiction to harness horror out of history.

Content: racism, sexual violence/threat.
