The Young One Who Came From the North 

Ana Teixeira, 85 min, 2023.


In a little corner of São Paulo, the Sertão (located in the north of Brazil), has taken up residence. Memories of migrants from the backlands are transformed into animation through the adventures of Rosinha, a bird-child who grows up and faces her conflicts as the characters tell their stories. As they reinvent their own Sertão in the place they inhabit, the protagonists ask themselves questions about belonging, their longing, and the future.
