  • The Soul of the Bone

    2004. Brazil. Directed by Cao Guimarães. The film gradually reveals the isolated existence of Dominguinhos, a 72-year-old man who lives inside a cave that juts off from a rock mountain. The Soul of the Bone is composed of long silences in which the hermit executes his daily chores, such as cooking and cleaning, and of images, shot in video and Super 8 film, that transcend his territory. Silence is the normal state in which time passes; speech is the exception. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 74 min.
