A heartbreaking story of two sisters separated for decades, The Invisible Life of Eurídice Gusmão is a moving melodrama of familial deceit and shame.

In Rio de Janeiro in the 1950s, sisters Eurídice and Guida are kept apart by a terrible lie, fuelled by patriarchal bigotry. The film is a haunting drama, championing the resilience and strength of women.

Adapted from Martha Batalha’s novel of the same name, the film had its world premiere in Cannes in 2019, where it won the top award in the Un Certain Regard category. Exploring notions of family, friendship, love and loyalty, The Invisible Life of Eurídice Gusmão is a lush telling of familial melodrama and the enduring bond between two sisters.
