One for the Road

Directed by Fernanda Faya
USA / 2018 / 11:50mins

As she moves from Brazil to NY, the filmmaker looks back at her grandma’s migration as a way to find traces of her own identity. The foreign yet intimate look at NYC and its inhabitants unfolds into a visual letter as she collects images of her new surroundings.
