This film by Adriana got her a nine-day expenses paid stay here at the Sundance Film Festival. At the festival, a launching ground for many indie filmmakers, she’ll have the chance to meet with Fox Searchlight Pictures production executives.
Adriana, professional author and screenwriter in her native Brazi, entered the contest at the urging of her daughter, Clarice, who stars in the film.
Falcao wrote a script in a day, while Clarice wrote and recorded an English language song to go with it. Collegue Flavia Lacerda filmed the picture in one day, and they spent one day editing.
“The whole thing cost $500 and took three days.” And it was quite a family effort. Falcao’s 15-year-old daughter handled the very modest wardrobe.
