  • Diary, Letters, Revolutions…

    2010. France/Brazil. Directed by Flávia Castro. The director tells the story of her father, Brazilian activist Celso Afonso Gay de Castro, whose life was intertwined with the political struggles that traumatized Latin America starting in the 1960s. The documentary maps a journey through the countries where Celso A. Castro was exiled and where Flávia spent her childhood—Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Venezuela, and France. The filmmaker, often with her mother as guide, examines the day-to-day life of the leftist militant generation of the 1960s and 1970s as she traces her father’s personal history—a story that began with a dream of political ideals and ended with a premature death shrouded in mystery. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 105 min.
