Screening TONIGHT at MoCADA here in Brooklyn, NY is Pocas Pascoal’s film, All is Well (Por Aqui Tudo Bem), which won Best Narrative Film at the Los Angeles Film Festival, following it’s North American premiere there.
The film centers on two teenaged sisters, Alda and Maria (played by Ciomara Morais and Cheila Lima), who flee a war-torn Angola in the 1980’s, seeking exile in Portugal, while they await their mother’s arrival. Their stay quickly takes an unexpected turn when their mother’s arrival is delayed, and they struggle to survive on the streets of Lisbon.
The subtle, nuanced drama, will screen along with director Pascoal’s documentary, There is Always Someone Who Loves You, which chronicles Pocas’ personal journey back to Angola to answer lingering questions about her and her sister’s experience together in the aftermath of her sister’s passing.
Both films are presented together in an exclusive screening courtesy of the director.
The event starts at 6pm, at MoCADA, 80 Hanson Pl., Brooklyn, NY 11217 • 718-230-0492 • firstname.lastname@example.org
