Maria Farinha Filmes


Directed by Cacau Rhoden

From the producers of Aruanas and The Beginning of Life


Studies say the person who will live 150 years has already been born. But what are we actually doing with this opportunity? "Many Days, Many Nights," a new documentary by Maria Farinha Filmes ("Aruanas," "The Beginning of Life") directed by Cacau Rhoden ("Not Even in a Wildest Dream," "Drops of Joy"), takes a deep dive into the purposes of our existence on the planet. Experts and thinkers invite us to look at the opportunities and inequalities of the theme, as well as our own connection with time and age. Featuring Alexandre Kalache, Sueli Carneiro, Ana Claudia Arantes, Mona Rikumbi, Ana Michelle Soares, Tom Almeida, Mórris Litvák and Alexandre Silva, the film shines a light on an essential question in our century: the longevity revolution has already begun, and it has come to transform the future of all generations.
