Back to Maracanã

Monday, 1/20 | Southeast U.S. Premiere

This touching and fun multigenerational comedy follows a Brazilian expat living in Israel who finds himself on an unexpected and eventful trip to Brazil for the World Cup. In this spirited film, a divorced Israeli dad embarks on a wild journey with his Brazilian father, a rabid soccer fan, and his disinterested 12-year old son. In the course of their sometimes-calamitous journey, they come to a new understanding of one another as long-buried secrets are revealed. Back to Maracanã is a heartfelt and humorous film featuring three generations of men trying to understand one another and come to terms with lives that aren’t going quite as they had hoped.
