BRAZIL, Uruguay, Chile, Denmark | 100 minutes | 2018
In a sci-fi Brazil that is still officially secular, nearly every level of society has been evangelized. Joana is a deeply religious civil servant, devout yet sensual, who is tormented by her inability to have children. She longs for a sign from above, but when it arrives, she will have to choose between calling her beliefs into question and further embracing her love of God. Divine Love uses a near-future setting to offer up an allegory on present-day totalitarian abuses while cultivating a perplexing ambiguity. Under its colourful surface lurks a disturbing and critical message.In collaboration with Festival du Film Brésilien de Montréal "... gorgeously shot and produced, impressively acted (...) Mascaro is one of the most audacious and gifted filmmakers of his generation." The Hollywood Reporter
