Vazante

Description
Forced to marry a slave trader, young Beatriz faces physical and emotional unrest beyond her years in this lyrical and nuanced historical mood piece. Upon returning from a trading expedition, Antonio discovers that his wife has died in labor. Confined to a decadent but desolate property in the company of his aging mother-in-law and numerous slaves, he marries his wife's young niece, Beatriz. Separated from her family and left alone on the rugged farmhouse in the Brazilian mountains, Beatriz finds solace in the displaced and oppressed inhabitants around her. Exploring the fraught intersection of feminism, colonialism, and race that has persisted across centuries and continents, VAZANTE is a haunting and stunning solo directorial debut from Brazilian filmmaker Daniela Thomas.

There is no way that the story of Vazante ... could end well. The genuine shock is how badly and horrifically it does end for all of these characters.

The ending has a feeling of inevitability but is nonetheless shocking, a tragedy resulting from an original sin that haunts, and will continue to haunt.

An epic of desperation, clotted emotions, racism and innocence destroyed, "Vazante" is chillingly beautiful and thoroughly awful, stuffed with grief and tragedy while wrestling with the dynamics of power.

Every frame of Inti Briones's starkly gorgeous black-and-white cinematography ... hints at an inherent contradiction, either visually, in the narrative or in its larger themes.
