Um Lugar Ao Sol explores the social and cultural mindset of the Brazilian elite through dialogues with the owners of nine penthouses in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Recife. Permeating the film’s interviews, a poetic visual and sound narrative provides evocative insight into the verticalization of the Brazilian cityscape. This is a film about height, status and power; it questions the elite in a way never before done in Brazilian cinema.

2009, Portuguese with English and Turkish subtitles, 71’
