Product Description

Sleepwalking Land (Terra Sonâmbula) - Amazon.com Exclusive

In the midst of Mozambique's devastating civil war, Muidinga, an orphaned refugee, wanders the countryside in search of his mother. His only companion is an elderly storyteller, and the only guide to finding his mother is a dead man's diary. Together, the storyteller and diary lead him on a magical, and sometimes macabre, journey across war-torn landscapes to find the family he lost.

Based on Mia Coutou's acclaimed Portuguese novel of the same name, Teresa Prata's transporting drama underscores the power of imagination in surviving, and ultimately overcoming, the catastrophe of war.

"Filmmaker Teresa Prata creates an affecting portrait of life during wartime. Ms. Prata, a skilled storyteller with a clear, unsentimental eye, neatly balances large-scale horror with a small-scale point of view charged with simple, direct feeling." –The New York Times

"'Sleepwalking Land is one of the most interesting and realistic films on Africa. If you accept magical realism as a tool to narrate a realistic socio-political scenario in Africa, both Mia Couto and Teresa Prata have much to offer and delight your senses." –Dear Cinema

Sleepwalking Land is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Portuguese with English subtitles.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Review

Filmmaker Teresa Prata creates an affecting portrait of life during wartime. Ms. Prata, a skilled storyteller with a clear, unsentimental eye, neatly balances large-scale horror with a small-scale point of view charged with simple, direct feeling. --New York Times

The unquantifiable toll of Mozambique's long civil war suffuses Sleepwalking Land, an emotionally affecting tale-within-a-tale helmed and scripted by Brazilian-born Teresa Prata. Originating with the wanderings of a young boy and an older man before spinning into a story that adds layers of resonance, this long-gestating pic works as a parable for a society struggling to cope with its evisceration. --Variety

Sleepwalking Land is one of the most interesting and realistic films on Africa. If you accept magical realism as a tool to narrate a realistic socio-political scenario in Africa, both Mia Couto and Teresa Prata have much to offer and delight your senses. --Dear Cinema
