Rodrigo Santoro Finds “Outro Lado do Céu” Deep in the Amazon

We saw that Brazilian filmmaker Gabriel Mascaro was hard at work on a new fourth feature, and now we have the title, cast and minor plot details to share. Titled Outro Lado do Céu (The Other Side of the Sky), Rodrigo Santoro (who we most recently saw in the Venice preemed 7 Prisoners) looks to be part of main players on this fourth feature film by Mascaro who reteams with Desvia Produções’ Rachel Ellis (most recently produced the Quinzaine-selected Légua). Look for this to be ready for a major film fest in 2024. Here is the translated synopsis:

In the name of protecting economic recovery from the threat of future pandemics, the Brazilian Government has created a system of sending anyone over 80 to purpose built colonies for “their wellbeing”. Teresa (77) lives in an industrialized town in the Amazon and is surprised when the age is reduced to 75. She decides to defy her fate and embarks on a journey down the rivers and tributaries of the Amazon, turning this turbulent time into an impulse to fulfill a lifelong dream: to fly. .

The production company are the Desvia folks. Co-producers include Globo Filmes (Brazil), Cinevinay (México), Viking Films (the Netherlands), Quijote (Chile).
