with Sonia Guedes, Lisa Favero, Luiz Serra, Ricardo Merkin.

In Brazil’s Paraiba Valley, dotted with abandoned estates, ghost towns and vestiges of a short-lived coffee boom, lies the fictitious village of Jotuomba. Here, in a town that has been forgotten by the rest of the world, life rolls on at a languid pace for its elderly inhabitants. When young photographer Rita finds the town by following the unused railroad tracks, her presence, and her questioning of the locked cemetery gates, reveals the secret to Jotuomba’s mystery.


Historias (Stories) directed by Julia Murat will be released by Cirko Film (Hungary) in 10 different movie theatres.
