In this thriller with subdued black humour, a newcomer causes complete chaos in a Brazilian family. The criminal exerts an uncanny fascination on all three family members. Violence imperceptibly invades their lives.

poster Charcoal (Carolina Markowicz, BR 2023)
In rural Brazil, Irene does her best to keep her alcohol and disease ravished family together. A health worker makes un unusual proposal: why not ‘replace’ the poor, aging grandfather with someone who can help the family financially? She introduces a special type of boarder: the Argentinian criminal Miguel who faked his own death and needs to lie low for a while. Alternately charming and grumpy, he leaves the remaining three members of the family oddly fascinated, as Terence Stamp did in Pasolini’s Teorema.
