RED RIO

“There’s a bang bang movie where the protagonist says to his fellow: draw a map of that country we were talking about” says the voice over. Isabel Batho returns to a devastated post-World Cup and Olympic Games Rio de Janeiro, seeking for a promised land. Her british ancestors have left her a heritage she can no longer find, whilst the ones who remained, displaced and looted in a dystopian city, seek revenge. In this third-world Western about exploitation and resistance, colonial agency and the remnants of slavery’s history, old enemies shall meet for a final duel.
