Director: Kleber Mendonça Filho
146 minutes
Portuguese; Turkish and English subtitles

Clara is the last-standing occupant of Aquarius, a beach-side residency in the coastal city of Recife, Brazil. With the ongoing prevalence of urban transformation, the original 1940s estate faces plans of redevelopment to establish a new high-rise apartment. Refusing to leave her home, the 65-year-old widower resists plans by the construction company in order to protect the memory of her late husband, children, friends, and herself.

Nominated for the Palme d’Or and Queer Palm awards at the 69th Cannes Film Festival, Aquarius (2016) contains nudity and is only suitable for people aged 18 or older.

Thursday Cinema is supported by Garanti Mortgage. Program is free. Reservations are not accepted.
