ELENA (Sept 9)

Brazilian documentary “Elena” represents director Petra Costa’s spiritual search for her older sister, an aspiring actress who fled Brazil’s military junta (1964-85) when Petra was only 7-years-old in order to live out her dreams in New York City. Addressing her personal subject with recrimination and visual virtuosity, Costa’s first feature length film is a elegiac dreamscape in which the director attempts to find Elena in New York City while piecing together a limited number of home movies, diary entries and newspaper clippings in order to learn more about her. Punctuated with bold images and poetic symbols, “Elena” is not a conventional documentary in any sense, and the more Costa allows the fractured lives of herself and her sister to meld, the more fluid the story becomes as a powerful meditation on time, sisterhood, identity and forgiveness.
