How did the idea of presenting the Doc no Rio showcase of Brazilian documentary, a part of which is available exclusively online at DAFilms.com, come about? Why does it make sense to be interested in Brazilian film? The curator of the programme Maria Mendes has answers!

Sorry, this film is no longer available.
In the mid 90's I lived in a squat in St. Petersburg, Russia. There I made friends with Marina, a Russian girl of my age with a difficult life. Later on Marina died in strange circumstances. In this film I make a journey to her grave and into my memories of her. Durochka is a film about being close, yet worlds away, a requiem for a dear, yet unknown friend.
