VIAJO PORQUE PRECISO, VOLTO PORQUE TE AMO
[I TRAVEL BECAUSE I HAVE TO, I COME BACK BECAUSE I LOVE YOU]
Marcelo Gomes & Karim Aïnouz / 71 min. / 2009/ Brazil

In this hauntingly melancholy film, geologist José Renato, travels to Sertão, an isolated region in Northeastern Brazil. His goal is to assess possible routes for a water canal from the region’s only river. For many of the region’s inhabitants, the canal will be a lifeline, the chance of a future and source of hope. But for those living on the canal’s direct course, it means only requisitions, departure and loss.

This series is sponsored by the Tulane University Film Studies Program’s Silverstein Fund, Stone Center for Latin American Studies, and Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute.
The Spanish Film Club series was made possible with the support of Pragda, the
Secretary of State for Culture of Spain, and its Program for Cultural Cooperation with
