Linha de Passe Our opening night film is LINHA DE PASSE.

Sao Paulo. 20 million inhabitants, 200 kilometres of traffic, 300,000 messengers on motorcycles. At the heart of one of the toughest, most chaotic cities in the world, four brothers try to reinvent themselves in different ways. With the backdrop of Brazil in a state of emergency, each one is looking for a way out…

This effort from Walter Salles (THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES) and his frequent collaborator Daniela Thomas (MIDNIGHT) is a characteristically humane and intelligent work. Steadfast in its refusal to glamourise violence and the extremity of the environment which the film’s characters are forced to inhabit, LINHA DE PASSE exudes compassion, drama and insight.
