EXCITANTE! New Films from Brazil
dir. Gabriela Amaral Almeida
When an armed robbery in a Brazilian restaurant interrupts an already-tense situation between the owner and a customer, a group of strangers and the staff are dragged into a frantic fight for their lives.

This tough survival tale is produced by RT Features (Call Me by Your Name) and directed by one of the brightest young women filmmakers in the country, Gabriela Amaral Almeida. (2017, 96 min, digital)
