In Brazil, the DVD was launched by Instituto Moreira Salles (IMS) in June 2014. It comes with a bonus copy of Petra’s other short film, Undertow Eyes (2009). The short is a poetic depiction of love and of the coming of age told by Petra’s grandparents. The film has been shown in many festivals around the world and it received important prizes in nine of them – including Best Short Film Picture at Rio’s International Film Festival and London’s International Documentary Festival (LIDF). It also won Best Short Documentary at the International Cine Las Americas Festival (USA), and a prize at the Gramado Festival (Brazil).
Elena premiered in Brazil in may 2013. With almost 60 thousand viewers, it quickly became the most watched documentary film in the country on that year. In the USA, the film opened a year later at the IFC Center, in New York City, and it has also been shown in places such as Los Angeles, Ohio, Seattle and Miami. In Canada it has been screened in both Vancouver, Toronto and Edmonton.
