GRETA
Dir: Armando Praça
97 min / 2019 / Brazil / Portuguese / Narrative Feature 

Pedro (Marco Nanini), a 70-year-old gay nurse is taking care of Daniela, his ailing transgender friend. In order to find her a vacant hospital bed, he decides to help an arrested and wounded criminal Jean to escape. While he is hiding Jean from the police, they find themselves in a power struggle that turns into affection. Their relationship does not only help Pedro to overcome his solitude, but also leads him to accept his true self. Greta is a film about desire, loneliness, old age and everything that makes us human.
