The Year My Parents Went On Vacation (35mm Projection)

About The Year My Parents Went On Vacation (35mm Projection)

Come and join us at CCA Glasgow for a special screening in stunning 35mm, led by projectionist Chris O’Kane. This remarkable Brazilian film will immerse you in the vivid, magical tones of this political story, told through football, religion and a child’s gaze. Don’t miss this moving story.

The Year My Parents Went on Vacation takes place in Brazil in 1970, when the country was ruled by a military dictatorship and its national soccer team, led by Pelé, was making its way toward the finals of the World Cup. Accordingly, sports and politics both play parts in this film, directed by Cao Hamburger, which filters the tumult and trauma of Brazilian history through the perceptions of a 12-year-old boy named Mauro.
