The Brazilian filmmaking tandem of Filipe Matzembacher and Marcio Reolon will see their award-winning film, Seashore, released on DVD in the domestic market by Wolfe on Aug. 4.
Martin (Mateus Almada) is dispatched by his father to Rio Grande do Sul — on Brazil’s southern border with Uruguay — to deal with issues at an old holiday home. Get there, get it done, get back home … besides, there is nothing to do there.
To break up the monotony of the trip, Martin brings along his old grade school friend, Tomaz (Mauricio José Barcellos). They haven’t spent much time together in recent years, so this little trip will serve, so Martin thinks, as a time to reconnect.
At first Rio Grande do Sul is exactly as expected. It is a place where there is little to do. But the serenity gives both Martin and Tomaz time to reconnect, plus there are local teens like themselves. Alcohol, partying and time to reflect make this trip to Rio Grande do Sul something that Martin or Tomaz never expected, or will soon forget.
Seashore is presented in Portuguese with English subtitles.
