Last Friday Anthology Film Archives in downtown Manhattan held the U.S. theatrical premiere of the acclaimed Brazilian film I Travel Because I Have to, I Come Back Because I Love You / Viajo porque preciso, volto porque te amo by directors Marcelo Gomes and Karim Aïnouz. The film, structured as a road movie narrated in first person from footage of a trip that the filmmakers did together in 1999, will have a one week run playing through Thursday, March 31 in New York City. Codirector Aïnouz traveled to New York for the film opening and offered a couple of Q&A sessions after the screenings of the film on Friday. Check out the video interview with Aïnouz by TropicalFRONT collaborator Rodrigo Brandão, posted on BrazilNYC:
