Elena

By Jan Lisa Huttner – The Hot Pink Pen – 6/2/2014

Decades after her death, filmmaker Petra Costa is still mourning the loss of her beloved sister Elena.

This is a heartbreaking premise and the documentary begins with all the promise embodied in these two young –and extremely beautiful — Brazilian-born women.

But even tho there seems to be a compelling family backstory, Costa chooses not to tell it, losing herself instead in poetic imagery.
