BASIC SANITATION, THE MOVIE (SANEAMENTO BÁSICO, O FILME) (Brazil, 2008, 112 min.)
A hilarious feature film set in the small town of Linha Cristal, where the community gets together to have a sewer system built and the creek’s odor problem resolved. Marina, the movement leader, learns that this year the City Hall has only enough funds to make a short fiction video. Then she and her husband, Joaquim, decide to shoot a story about a monster that emerges in the middle of the sanitation construction works. Marina writes a script, Joaquim sews a costume, Silene agrees to be an actress, Fabrício has a camera. Gradually, the filmmaking will involve all the local inhabitants. In Portuguese with English subtitles. Directed by Jorge Furtado. Produced by the Casa de Cinema de Porto Alegre.
