THE FAMOUS AND THE DEAD

by Esmir Filho

synopsis

In a far flung little town in the Brazilian countryside, Mr Tambourine, a Bob Dylan fan, allays his boredom by looking at photographs and films put on line, always by the same unknown female. He writes poems on his blog, chats with his best friend Paulinho, and toys with the idea of going to a concert given by his idol. His days are a round of school, bunking off to smoke dope, and his fantasies about this girl whose image haunts him. But the appearance of a mysterious man in the town sends him on a journey into his memories and a world beyond reality.
