BEHIND THE SUN (article first published : 2003-04-20)

Every Sunday, the Berea CineCentre at Berea Centre hosts a series of art movies titled Cinema Sublime The programme operates as a fund-raising project for the NSA Galleries’ outreach programme.

The next movie takes place on April 27 and wil be Behind the Sun, a collaboration between Brazil, France and Switzerland in 2001 and directed by Walter Salles, In Portuguese with English subtitles, it received the Little Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival 2001.

Behind the Sun was adapted from Ismail Kadare's acclaimed novel Broken April but the setting is transposed from Albania to a remote region of Brazil "somewhere behind the sun" in 1910. Two families are locked in a blood feud over ownership of a sugar plantation and death is inevitable. A brief respite from the vicious cycle of eye-for-an-eye killing comes in the unlikely form of two travelling circus performers and, at last, a world free from hatred, violence and filial obligation can be experienced.

Full of poetic imagery, dazzling photography and brilliant performances from a mostly unknown cast, this film is drama at its best.
