MUTUM (Schwarzer Vogel, Stilles Kind)

Thiago is a sensitive and imaginative boy living on a small, hardscrabble farm in a remote region of Brazil. His life is filled not only with curiosity and youthful discovery, but also the reality of his parent’s unhappy marriage and his father’s abuse—all of which are one day changed by a chance encounter and unexpected gift.

Director Sandra Kogut, in her poetic adaptation of the Brazilian short story ‘Campo Geral’, focuses on minute details of rural life to tell a bittersweet story of one boy’s coming-of-age amidst events both great and small.

In Portuguese with English subtitles.
