Fading memories of childhood are unreliable. They can only be reassured by familiar faces.
Dois Estágios is a documentary that explores the beginning and end of a bloodline. Starting in the urban environment of São Paulo city where the filmmaker was raised and ending on her family’s country farm where her grandparents spend their golden years, the film delves into the personal and shared history of a Brazilian family through the explorations of a longing memory.
