by Luiz Bolognesi – Brazil, 2013
(98', Original version with Italian subtitles , Bluray)
Winner at Annecy International Animated Film Festival for Best Feature Film in 2013, Rio 2096 – A Story of love and Fury revolves around the love between Janaína and an Indian warrior who, upon dying, takes the form of a bird. For over six centuries, the couple’s story flourishes, passing through four phases of Brazil’s history: colonization, slavery, military regime and the future, in 2096, when a war over water takes place in Rio de Janeiro. Throughout all these periods, the two lovers struggle against oppression. The film could be considered an unofficial biography of Rio de Janeiro.
