NYC PREMIERE In the ruined lands near the Transbrasiliana motorway in Brazilian Amazonia, Edna has witnessed massacres perpetrated by the military dictatorship. Edna weaves her memories into the narrative through her diary, entitled “Story of My Life,” reflecting on the life of guerrillas, the disappeared, deforestation, and survival. Director Eryk Rocha’s lyrical hybrid narrative draws an empowering portrait of Edna’s unwavering strength and courage. – Kim Garcia
