Here's an intriguing new animated feature film that might tickle your fancy. Directed by Luiz Bolognesi, and titled Rio 2096, A Story of Love and Fury, the animated film tells the story of Brazil in 4 phases: colonization, slavery, military regime, and then looks to the future, in 2096, during which a war for water is taking place. Promising a history of Brazil that you've never seen told quite like this, central to the narrative is an immortal hero's search for the woman he has been in love with for 600 years. Targeting both youngsters and adults alike with a graphic novel slant to it, the film stars the voice talents of Selton Mello, Camila Pitanga, Rodrigo Santoro »
