<< Return to All Films | Sinopsis en Español

Trudging his way home through the dense, muddy heart of the Brazilian rainforest to a colonial estate on the verge of collapse, Portuguese slave trader Antonio discovers that his beloved wife has died during childbirth, sending the troubled mine owner to the brink of madness and into self-imposed exile. With the slaves’ righteous anger fomenting and a region being pushed to the edge of revolution, Antonio soon returns in an attempt to salvage his fading grip on power, taking 12 year-old Beatriz as his bride while repeatedly forcing himself on slave Feliciana. Yet when another expedition pulls him away from the estate, Beatriz finds her attentions swayed by Feliciana’s handsome young son Virgílio, leading to a powerful climax and a devastating examination on the nature of power, sex and race in this visually stunning new film by writer/director Daniela Thomas.

Al regresar a su dilapidada hacienda colonial atravesando el denso y fangoso corazón de la selva tropical de Brasil, el traficante de esclavos Antonio descubre que su esposa y bebé han muerto en el parto, empujando a este esclavista al borde de la locura y a un auto-impuesto exilio. Cuando la justificada ira de los esclavos aumenta hasta llegar al punto revolucionario, Antonio regresa para tratar de rescatar su debilitado poder casándose con Beatriz, una niña de 12 años, y violando reiteradamente a la esclava Feliciana. Cuando una nueva expedición lo aleja de la hacienda, Beatriz se siente atraída hacia Virgilio, el guapo y joven hijo de Feliciana, lo cual lleva a la poderosa culminación y al devastador análisis de la naturaleza del poder, el sexo y la raza en este visualmente impresionante nuevo film de la escritora y directora Daniela Thomas.
