    • Synopsis
    • In Girimunho we should breathe an atmosphere of magic and movement. In the
      midst of the sertão landscape, oniric occurrences that populate the imagination of
      its people blend with the prosaic situations in the lives of our characters. The
      present time revealing the traditions being transformed by the arrival of new
      times; by the younger ones standing their ground; by the presence of technology
      and the facilitation of communication. We intent to narrate their histories from the
      inside out and to show how beautiful is their believe in the coexistence of different
      point of views
