  • Basic Sanitation, The Movie

    2007. Brazil. Directed by Jorge Furtado. With Fernanda Torres, Wagner Maura, Camila Pitanga. The small community of Linha Cristal gets together to dig a pit for sewer treatment, but there is no budget for a sewer. There is, however, money earmarked for the production of an educational video, so a resourceful young couple engages in some creative bookkeeping. Well-acted and willfully unsophisticated, the movie provides delightful lessons in moviemaking and effective social activism. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 112 min.
