Sol Alegria

Sun Nov 15, 11:00

Film, Rio Online, £12.5 / £10.5 con

The Rio may be shut, but we are still keeping the spirit of Fringe! alive online. Enjoy the wild Sol Alegria for 48 hours from the comfort of your own home. This screening will be Geo-blocked to the UK.

Now we are not saying if Fringe! dreamed up a road movie it would include militant nuns who worshiped the power of the anus, but we are not ‘not’ saying it would feature characters like these. Prepare yourself for Sol Alegria, a wild and rebellious romp through a dystopian Brazil, featuring corrupt priests, tiger balm and lashings of unbridled free love.

We follow a family pf anarchic oddballs as they take a lawless trek through the interiors of Brazil, a country under the grip of a military junta. As clergy men preach the gospel of the apocalypse, our band of outsiders soldier on in their mission to deliver arms to a convent of cannabis growing nuns, ready to fight the good fight.

With a camp mix of satire and psychedelia, Sol Alegria manages to evoke the work of early Almodóvar, Czech New Wave and Pornochanchada, offering a delightful queer gaze to the road movie genre.
