A Feast for George

52 min.   |   Portuguese   |   Brazil, 2009

The day-to-day life of three devotees of Saint George during the months of preparation for the saint’s feast – the 23rd of April. Ana does her best to organise the kiosks for the feast. Jorge is in charge of keeping order in the church. Helinho deals with his “orixás". The relationship of these people with the feast stands as evidence of the importance of the devotion to Saint George in Rio de Janeiro.
