Actress Francisca Manuel attending!

Lithe and eager to taste the world, Teresa (Elizabete Francisca) relocates from her native Portugal to move in with longtime friend and fellow Portuguese expat Francisca (Francisca Manuel), the pair sharing a tiny apartment in the center of Belo Horizonte, one of Brazil’s largest metropolitan centers. Full of life and guided by an innate openness, Teresa quickly comes to embrace the rhythms and unexpected pleasures of her new home as her older, more sensitive flatmate quietly starts to long for a return to her European roots in this beautiful, nuanced and sensitively drawn exploration of place, home and the shifting sands of friendship.

Developing the screenplay through improvisational workshops with non-professional actors, this first fiction narrative from acclaimed documentarian Marilia Rocha weaves a warm, true to life spell that will resonate with anyone who remembers (or is experiencing) the exciting, unsteady energy of what it is to be twenty-something and free. Shot with a crystalline focus by DP Ivio Lopes Arau in Belo Horizonte’s pool halls, parks, streets and backyards,WHERE I GROW OLD unfolds with the same freshness and sense of wonder that defines youth itself. Winner of the top four Awards, Best Film, Best Director, Best Actresses, and Best Supporting Actor at the recent Festival de Brasilia Do Cinema Brasileiro.

Título: A Cidade Onde Envelheço (Portugués)

En esta hermosa y sutil exploración de lugar, de raíces y de las arenas movedizas de la amistad, Teresa se muda desde Portugal a Belo Horizonte, uno de los centros metropolitanos más grandes de Brasil, para vivir con su amiga Francisca, que ha emigrado antes. A medida que Teresa comienza a apreciar los nuevos ritmos y los placeres inesperados de su nuevo hogar, Francisca comienza a añorar el regreso a sus raíces europeas.
