Dir. Alexandre Moratto | 70 mins
Portuguese with English subtitles 

From Executive Producer Fernando Meirelles (City of God), Socrates is the debut feature film from Brazilian-American director Alexandre Moratto. It is the first feature produced by the Querô Institute in Brazil where it was co-written, produced, and acted by at-risk teenagers with the support of UNICEF.

Socrates, a handsome 15-year-old, is not just another underage kid living on the margins of society while working the construction sites of São Palo, he has a purpose. Because of the sudden death of his mother, Socrates has had to fend for himself, trying desperately to earn the rent to keep his run-down apartment and remain out of the clutches of social services and his estranged father.  

How To Watch

The film is available to rent from Peccadillo Pictures for £9.49 on Vimeo here. You will be supporting Exeter Phoenix as 25% of your rental will go towards supporting our independent cinema.
