QUERÊNCIA Heimkehren (Homing)
Brazil/Germany 2019. D: Helvécio Marins Jr.
Cast: Marcelo di Souza, Kaic Lima, Carlos Dalmir. 90 Min. DCP. OV with German subitles.
Marcelo is a cowboy in the Brazilian pampas. He loves his profession, riding, the cattle, which he tenderly calls by their name, the land that feeds him. When, during a brutal attack on the farm, he cannot prevent hundreds of cattle from being stolen from his care, things change dramatically. Marcelo becomes depressed and quits his job. Fortunately, he has good friends and a great passion: as master of ceremonies at rodeo shows, he finds new joy. His enthusiastically rapped announcements pay homage not only to cowboy culture, but also to the lived solidarity of the rural population, which has little confidence in the political leadership of the country.
