  2. Program 23: Good Manners (As boas maneiras)

    Marco Dutra and Juliana Rojas / Subtitled, ImageOut There! Series, Narrative Feature, Tuesday, Oct. 9 / Brazil, France / 2017 / 135 mins
    There’s often at least a hint of horror to the most enduring fairy tales. They captivate and entertain us, luring us with fantastical and outlandish stories before digging into questions of real-world morality. It’s much the same with the atmospheric fable Good Manners, a haunting tale of love and motherhood that delicately weaves in themes of race, class, and social inequality.

    Joris, blond and addicted to his gym routine, is so handsome that he could easily work as a model. But something is not right – there is a hole in him, unresolved damage from his father’s death when he was a boy.

    Music is my life,” 17-year-old Johan says during his audition for a coveted spot in the South African Defence Force Church Choir and Concert Group, also known as the Canaries. A New Wave-loving misfit with a passion for Queen, Kate Bush, Depeche Mode, and his beloved Boy George, Johan clings to their music like a lifeline; the lens through which he processes (and sometimes shields himself from) the world around him.

    Lorenzo is a classic bookworm: quiet, crazy skinny, the last kid to get picked for soccer, his face stuck in the pages of a science fiction novel. But he also has an intensity and a sense of responsibility which goes beyond the typical teenager. Protected by loving parents, Lorenzo seems at peace, if a little lonely, growing up in a small city in Argentina.
