Samuel and the Light


For his first feature, Girnys filmed Samuel and his family for six years and chronicled the complex reality which emerged in the small fishing village of Ponta Negra on the arrival of electricity and tourism. In his documentary, he consciously drew a portrait of contemporary Brazil with suggestion rather than explanation. The film won the Jury Award for Best Documentary at the São Paulo International Film Festival and the FEISAL Award for Best Film at the Guadalajara International Film Festival.
