“I believe that death does not exist. It feels good to say that.”
Solange died very young, but her presence is still tangible in this Dutch-Brazilian family who lives in the impoverished neighbourhood of Ponta Negra in the north of Brazil.
Sister Vida weaves her into her games. Mother Ryan still has nightmares, but also looks for beauty in the photos she takes. Despite the gloomy background, bright images bear witness to hope in this intimate family portrait.
The Sun of Ponta Negra premiered at the Dutch Film Festival 2021.
