Via Rio


Rental Format(s): 16mm

"VIA RIO is an ode to our human desire for relationship. The film tumbles through a series of relationships woven around one woman's narration of her parents' marriage. This woman (played by Lilian Mafra) is a fresh and fecund personality who relates the story of her mother's infidelities while sitting naked and pregnant in a garden. Interspersed around this narrative are a number of other scenes that feed the complex nature of human interaction. Interaction that is sometimes comic, sometimes lonely, but, as the very pregnant Mafra indicates - inevitably a part of life." - Frances De Vuono
