In day May 27 at 7:30 pm, The Cine Olido exhibits the premiere of the film O Labirinto da Solão, inspired by the homonymous work by Octavio Paz. The film is written and directed by Rachel Freire, a journalist who grew up on the outskirts of SP and who found in cinema a way to express his thoughts and observations.
The Labyrinth of Solitude was produced by Somaê Movies, in a totally independent and collaborative way, without funds from public notices or sponsorship. It is a medium-length guerrilla film, in which the desire to make movies, added to the effort and “hands-on” brings as a result a film that promotes a reflection on identity, life choices and madness.
The film is directed by Rachel Freire, which already demonstrates its affinity with themes that put women in focus and contemporary social issues. Among his works, it is worth highlighting the documentary Girls On Fire: From Game to Life and the short films Match – which accumulates almost thirty selections in festivals around the world, and the recently launched Mood, which addresses the overuse of social networks and interference with humor and productivity. Besides her, the cast is predominantly female.
The film also shows that it is independent cinema (a part of Brazilian cinema) that resists the lack of resources and investments and shows that it is possible to produce from teamwork and passion for the seventh art.
