CLFF: Stolen Dreams/ El Oso Miyoi

April 7, 2011 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Stolen Dreams/ Sonhos Roubados
Brazil, 2010, 90 min.
Director: Sandra Werneck
Genre: Drama
Portuguese with subtitles

Sonhos Robados follows the lives of three teenage girls, Jessica, Daiane, and Sabrina, living and working in Rio de Janeiro. On the cusp of poverty, Jessica and Sabrina turn to prostitution, with the younger Daiane almost eagerly looking on, waiting for the day when she can be just like her friends. Though first sheltered, eventually the lucrative business takes hold. For a time, the girls revel in their new cash flow and even newer independence, but this “freedom” is bittersweet. With only a glimpse of an alternative route to complete independence, Sonhos Robados depicts one very real struggle of low-income communities around the world.
