Retrospective: Karim Aïnouz

With generous empathy and a sensualist’s eye for detail, Karim Aïnouz has created a unique body of work that provides loving but unsentimental portraits of memorable characters. While alive with beauty and emotion, the world he presents is also astutely aware of the structures that limit their possibilities. The son of a Brazilian mother and Algerian father, and a graduate of New York University’s film school, Aïnouz has become a treasured presence at the world’s most important film festivals. His films are the perfect choice to close out the Wex’s winter of Brazilian programming.
