Festival Section: Hivos Tiger Awards Competition.

Filmmaker Fellipe Barbosa talks to FRED about his film CASA GRANDE, which was presented at the 43rd International Film Festival Rotterdam.

Jean (17) is growing up in the elite district of Rio, with its private schools, drivers and housekeepers. While he tries to escape from his over-protective parents, they keep their approaching bankruptcy secret. This beautifully played coming-of-age film provides a clear picture of class differences and racism.

Reporter: Matt Micucci.
