Movie Night: Elena

  • May 30, 2014 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

ELENA is an award-winning and elegiac documentary that opens at the IFC Center in New York City on May 30th, followed by openings in Los Angeles on June 13th, and in other North American cities throughout the spring and summer.

There will be a Panel Discussion with director Petra Costa and special guests :  Latin America, Cinema and Memory.


The film traces filmmaker Petra Costa's lyrical and emotional search for her sister Elena, who left home for New York to become a movie actress after a childhood in hiding following the military dictatorship in Brazil. In the spirit of Tarnation, ELENA obliterates the line between documentary, diary, and fever dream, and is at once both captivating and devastating. From executive producers Tim Robbins and Fernando Meirelles, Elena is one of the most successful documentaries of all time in Brazil.

80 Minutes, In Portuguese with English subtitles. Brazil/USA

      Drinks sound great! Berimbau, the Brazilian restaurant is super close to the theater, on 43 Carmine St. Could be a cool place to get caipirinhas!

    The movie is still not in the website, but the price for adults there is usually $14.00 for adults. It might be a good idea to buy your ticked in advance. Have a great week!
