A film by Carlos Porto de Andrade Jr.
Moments before a father’s death, all of his family memories are transferred to his son through a dream. This story is told in parallel with an investigation by two cousins who are writing a book about the family. All that is left are fragmented evidences, destroyed photos and the oral history. The narrative develops a different visual language to guide us through this saga about an unusual family made up of contradictory versions.
The ancestor, an Englishman living at the end of the 18th century, arrives in Brazil and gets married to a Portuguese lady, owner of an extensive piece of land. Their heirs will become the protagonists in this history of conflicts, legends and mysteries.
Love will lead to death but the supernatural will inspire love again.
Primavera is an independent feature film directed by Carlos Porto de Andrade Junior that presents an unusual language for Brazilian film productions.
The cast is composed of actors already enshrined in theater, film or television, within and outside Brazil: Ana Paula Arósio, Ruth de Souza, Marilia Gabriela, Ruth Escobar, Werner Schünemann, Emilio di Biasi, Nelson Baskerville, Jairo Mattos, Lucia Romano, Déborah Duboc, Isadora de Faria and many more.
Filmed in Super 16mm, the film uses archive footage, photographs and materials in the public domain to fill in fragments of memory that have no historical record. This heredity story reveals a poem of love, hate, passion, violence and reconciliation.
