From director René Sampaio comes an action/drama titled Brazilian Western (Faroeste Caboclo) which will screen at the Toronto International Film Festival this year, (making its Canadian premiere), in the Contemporary World Cinema section - a group that was announced this morning.


Here's how TIFF describes it:

Loosely based on legendary Brasilia rock band Legiao Urbana’s seminal folk song, René Sampaio’s lyrical, fable-like debut feature follows a young man from the provinces who decides to try his luck in the capital, where he falls in with a rough crowd — and falls for a senator’s daughter.

The film stars Fabrício Boliveira, Isis Valverde, Felipe Abib, Antônio Calloni, and Flavio Bauraqui.

A trailer follows below (although it's not subtitled in English).
