The most recent film by acclaimed director Marcelo Gomes (Once Upon a Time Veronica) is an engaging documentary portrait of relentless capitalism, centered in the small Brazilian village of Toritama. Here, more than 20 million pairs of jeans are produced in makeshift factories every year. The locals work nonstop, proud to be the masters of their own time. During Carnival—the area’s only leisure time of the year—they sell their belongings and flee to the beaches in search of ephemeral happiness. When Ash Wednesday arrives, a new work cycle begins. An Icarus Films release.
