Brazilian Film “Linha de Passe” at the IMA

The Indianapolis Museum of Art continues its Screen Zenith Film Series on Thursday, January 14, 2010 with the Brazilian film Linha de Passe. This Indianapolis art event is being held in the Tobias Theatre of the IMA, a favorite Indianapolis museum. The film begins at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $9.00 for Indianapolis people, $5.00 for IMA museum members and $7.00 for Indianapolis kids with a valid student ID.

Linha de Passe is a Brazilian film from directors Walter Sells and Daniela Thomas. Sells is best known for his film The Motorcycle Diaries, which achieved international success and critical acclaim. Linha de Passe, his latest project, released in 2008, mirrored the success of his past career winning awards about both the Cannes and Havana Film Festival.

The film follows the story of a pregnant single mother and her four sons, each by a different father. Cleuza, pregnant with her fifth child, cleans house for a middle class family. Each of her sons must struggle to survive the urban life of Sao Paulo where they live. Each fights to follow a dream as they encounter new obstacles every day. Dario dreams of achieving a better life with his talents as a soccer player. Denis works as a motorcycle courier. Dinho helps at a local church, surviving on his job at a gas station. And Refinaldo, though a gifted soccer player, dreams of driving a bus. The film questions the cycle of lower class families in the rough and underdeveloped country.
