Synopsis: "The documentary weaves a tapestry out of the gestures seen in children’s play throughout Brazil. These gestures tell stories, reveal narratives, and construct the unique, yet universal, language of play. Directors Renata Meirelles and David Reeks collected their footage over a two-year period, traveling among the country’s most diverse realities."
