Craft – Global Lens Film Series

Posted on January 14, 2013 by

January 20, 2013 – Sunday – 3 p.m. – Downtown Library

Craft – directed by Gustavo Pizzi (Brazil)

Bianca manages a precarious living as a talented but underemployed actress in Rio de Janeiro, performing for private events dressed as female movie icons. Troubled by the thought she has missed her chance at a “big break,” she perseveres with single-minded dedication to her craft—until an audition leads to a rare opportunity, and possible redemption for years of social marginality. But her world may still prove too insecure, even for one as gifted and deserving as Bianca. Set against rich visuals and a down-to-earth tone, Karine Teles’s remarkable lead performance drives an enveloping drama of everyday tragedy in the working world of an artist.  In Portuguese and French with English subtitles.
