Cidade; Campo.

Two tales of migration between city and countryside. In the first part, after a tailings dam disaster floods her hometown, rural worker Joana moves to São Paulo to find her sister Tania, who lives with her grandson Jaime. Joana struggles to thrive in the “working city”. In the second part, after the death of her estranged father, Flavia moves to his farm with her wife Mara. The nature forces the two women to face frustrations and cope with old memories and ghosts.


Writer and director, born in Campinas, Brazil, in 1981 and living in Sao Paulo since 1999, Juliana’s work is focused on genre bending narratives, mixing fantasy/horror and science fiction, sometimes with touches of musical and comedy. Her films have participated in international festivals dedicated to genre, such as Sitges, Fantastic Fest, Létrange and Gerardmer. She directed, as a solo director, the awarded short films Doppelgänger (Special Mention at the Cannes Critics’ Week) and The Passage of the Comet (premiered in Rotterdam) and the feature films Necropolis Symphony (FIPRESCI Award, Mar del Plata) and Cidade; Campo, selected at the 74th Berlinale, in the Encounters section. With Marco Dutra, she directed the short films The White Sheet (Cinéfondation, Cannes) and Um Ramo (Kodak Discovery Award, Cannes Critics’ Week) and the feature films Hard Labor (Un Certain Regard, Cannes) and Good Manners (Special Jury Award, Locarno). As a screenwriter for fiction series, she worked on Supermax (Rede Globo), 3% (Season 2 – Netflix) and Kissing Game (Netflix). Juliana also directed episodes for the series Kissing Games (Netflix), Urban Terrors (Playplus) and Tarã (Disney Plus – to be released in 2024).
