Rio 2096, A Story of Love and Fury is an animated film revolving around the love between an immortal hero and Janaína, the woman he has been in love with for 600 years. Luiz Bolognesi has set the story in four phases of Brazil’s history: colonization, slavery, military regime and the future, in 2096, in the midst of wars for water. Targeting both youngsters and adults alike with a graphic novel slant to it, the film stars the voice talents of Selton Mello and Camila Pitanga as the two main characters. The feature film also counts on the voice of Rodrigo Santoro as an Indian Chief and warrior.
DIRECTOR: Luiz Bolognesi
