An atmospheric sci-fi story set in Brazil, in the year 2027, Gabriel Mascaro’s (NEON BULL, AUGUST WINDS) latest follows Joana (Dira Paes), a deeply religious woman who uses her position in a notary’s office to convince couples on the verge of divorce to attend her cult-like Divine Love therapy sessions in an effort to save their marriages. That is not hard to do in a society where religion has seeped into every crevice and where people celebrate their faith in all-night raves and search for answers from drive-through 24-hour confessional booths. DIVINE LOVE is an intriguing parable and socio-political commentary of a future Brazil in which questionable past choices led to a future where everyone is craving salvation.

In Portuguese with English subtitles.
