In the final part of her family-triptych, Antoinette Zwirchmayr allows the women to speak: the grandmother’s, mother’s, and filmmaker’s fragmentary memories of Brazil; mythical fairy-tale-like imaginations with emancipatory potential. “The little girl, long a woman, can travel and look and speak and then follow the trail of her own identity. Wherever it might go.”
