Futuro Beach

Introduced by Karim Aïnouz

(Karim Aïnouz, 2014)

Screenings of Karim Aïnouz’s seductive and sensual works closed out our tribute to Brazilian contemporary art and film in early 2014, but unfortunately the director had to cancel his visit at the last minute. This year we’re thrilled to finally welcome him to Columbus for a special advance screening of his new film, Futuro Beach, before it opens in New York later in the month. The film is a stunning, emotionally resonant tale about three men struggling across oceans of love, loss, and heartache as a Brazilian lifeguard fails to save a swimmer and seeks out the victim’s friend, a handsome German biker. Years later, after the two have entered into a passionate affair and moved to Germany, their seemingly peaceful life is threatened by a visitor from the Brazilian’s past. (106 mins., DCP)
