This beautiful portrait of rural life in Brazil fuses fiction and documentary as it centers on Batsu, an 81-year-old woman trying to start over after her husband’s death. Swirl uses the lives of its nonprofessional cast and the histories of their village as starting points for an entrancing exploration of tradition and contemporary life, reality and dream, and life and death. (90 mins., 35mm)
