    2006. Brazil. Directed by Eduardo Coutinho. This beautifully realized work about the lives of women is simultaneously an exploration of the art of filmmaking and the act of performance. Eighty-three women who answered the filmmaker’s newspaper ad told their life stories in a studio, and twenty-three were selected to appear in the film. In June 2006 they filmed their stories in Teatro Glauce Rocha, a traditional theater in Rio de Janeiro. The following September, actresses performed these stories, daring audiences to distinguish between reality and performance. New York premiere. 103 min.
