Faraway Song

Feature-length film which follows the trajectory of Jimena as she searches for her place in the world. The film shows the transformation into adulthood of this late-bloomer. From a traditional family, Jimena is a young architect who works in reputable firm in Belo Horizonte,
and is responsible for designing a new headquarters for the Minas Gerais Orchestra. She lives with her mother and grandmother, two women for whom she cares dearly and to who she is very close. At home, they call her Nina and speak little of her father, Arturo. Born in El Salvador, Arturo left Brazil when his daughter was 4 years old. After 10 years of absolute silence, Arturo reestablished contact with Jimena, sending letters to her regularly.
