Picking up a crop of festival awards, this committed exploration of the lives of São Paulo state's sugar cane cutters fuses the hard realities of their labour with received images of Brazil and its attendant mythologies. Spirited endurance and the ability to find brief joys despite hardship are bracketed by the awareness that encroaching mechanisation might threaten even these small victories.
