The Year My Parents Went On Vacation

May 12, 2008

(Brazil) Rated PG
104 minutes

The Year My Parents Went On Vacation, the second feature film by emerging Brazilian filmmaker Cao Hamburger, won immediate critical praise upon its release. This touching coming-of-age story was nominated for the top prize, the Golden Berlin Bear, at the 2007 Berlin International Film Festival, and won the coveted Audience Award at the 2007 Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival.

The story is set in Brazil in 1970, when military dictatorships were on the rise in South America – wreaking havoc on the political economies of the region – and the Vietnam War was raging. But none of this matters to twelve-year-old Mauro (newcomer Michel Joelsas), who – like so many others that volatile summer – is more interested in the World Cup of soccer. Mauro‘s situation, however, is rather distinct from that of other sports-fanatic children: his parents, left-wing activists, have been forced to go into hiding in order to pursue their underground activities and, in haste, they leave Mauro with his grandfather.
