RIO 2096: A STORY OF LOVE AND FURY [Uma História de Amor e Fúria]

Spanning 600 years of tumultuous Brazilian history, this bold animated epic follows the passionate romance of an immortal warrior and the love of his many lives, as they are reincarnated, persecuted, torn apart and reunited again. Whether rebelling against the colonial Portuguese, the military dictatorship of the 1960s or the dystopian police state of the near future, the hero is forced to take a leap of faith to keep his love alive. "The ambitious RIO 2096: A STORY OF LOVE AND FURY fuses old-fashioned animation style with computer work and comes up with a film that blends legend with politics, finding plenty of room [for] sex, violence and mythology as it freewheels through the centuries." –Mark Adams, Screen Daily. Best Feature, 2013 Annecy Animation Film Festival.
