A FREE invitation to Brazilian Gala at VLAFF-"Smoke gets in your eyes"

[color=red]Thanks to our friends at VLAFF, everyone is invited for a FREE Brazilian GALA night at VLAFF ( Vancouver Latin American Film Festival), and the Brazilian movie Smoke gets in your eyes. [/color] Director: Anna Muylaert Producers: Sara Silveira, Maria Ionescu & Anna Muylaert Screenplay: Anna Muylaert Cinematographer: Jacob Solitrenik Editor: Paulo Sacramento Music: Marcio Nigro Principal Cast: Gloria Pires, Marisa Orth, Paulo Cesar Pereio, Andre Abujamra Baby (Gloria Pires), a chain-smoking guitar teacher in her forties, craves a romantic relationship. When musician Max (Paulo Miklos) moves into the apartment next door, she sees the possibility of turning her lonely life around. Instead, she unexpectedly finds herself involved in a love triangle leading to a terrible jealous rage. A bad time to give up smoking! Love, sex, agony and death... Anna Muylaert’s Smoke Gets In Your Eyes balances the fine line between comedy and tragedy, taking its characters on a journey to and from the dark side. As in life, they end up bruised, but perhaps better human beings in the long run. Anna Muylaert was born in Sao Paulo in 1964. She studied filmmaking at the School of Communications and Arts at USP. Screenwriter and director of film and television, Muylaert made several short films, including A Origem dos Bebes Segundo Kiki Cavalcanti (1996) and Rock Paulista (1988). She also collaborated on screenplays for the TV series Sons of Carnival and Alice, both on HBO. In 2001 she produced and directed her first feature, Durval Discos (2002), Best Film at the Gramado Festival. In 2008, she directed É Proibido Fumar, winner of 10 awards at the Brasilia Film Festival including Best Film and Best Actor and also was screened at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
