The Films

Above the Magnolia Branches
Jasmine LeCount-McLanahan

Sabrina Vozikis
Marilia, an elderly Brazilian immigrant in NYC, is just starting to claim her independence at the age of 72. After her fair share of sacrifices and hardships, mostly for her late husband who made a life for himself while leaving her with nothing, Marilia works towards autonomy through her resiliency. She discusses both the control she wants over her life versus society’s desire to control her, manifested through one example: her hair.
