Drama

Andre, a teenager, lives in an industrial town in Brazil near an old aluminum factory.

One day, a factory worker, Cristiano, suffers an accident. Asked to go to Cristiano's

house to pick up clothes and documents, Andre stumbles on a notebook, and it's

here that Araby begins or, rather, transforms. As Andre reads from the journal

entries, we are plunged into Cristiano's life, into stories of his wanderings,

adventures, and loves. Beautifully written and filmed, Araby is a fable-like road

movie about a young man who sets off on a twenty-year journey in search of a better

life.

Comments are closed.

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
