Divino Amor / Divine Love Programme 2021

by Gabriel Mascaro Feature Film Competition

Brazil in a not too distant future. Joana and her husband Danilo are lost in the sound of a synth pop concert. In neon illuminated letters the words “100% Jesus. Love. God” appear on a screen. Joana is a devout woman, her childless marriage a problem because it does not adhere to the family ideal preached by the state. With the help of the religious group “Divino Amor”, the couple hopes for a much-desired offspring – the epitome of divine love. Verses from the Bible and unusual sex rituals are supposed to help the achievement of this highest of goals. In a world of fast prayers at drive-in churches and full-body scanners in every public building, faith is the last sacrosanct. When a miracle happens to Joana, however, nobody wants to believe her. Director Gabriel Mascaro, an outstanding talent of Brazil’s exciting new generation, presents DIVINO AMOR, a perhaps futuristic, yet certainly topical drama, which captivates with its poetic imagery and 80s score.
