Alucinados (Riding High) is a psychological thriller about a crime that has become common in today’s Rio de Janeiro. The film takes us into the most dramatic day in the life of Julia, a housewife who is kidnapped in her armored car by Case and Sapeca, two young men from Rio’s slums. What seems at first sight to be a conflict between rich and poor turns into a much more complex plot linking the characters’ past and present.

Screening followed by a Q & A with Director Roberto Santucci. Parking available in structure 3 for $8.00


Cost : Free and open to the public
