Elena (2012) (58/365)

Elena, a young Brazilian woman, travels to New York with the same dream as her mother, to become a movie actress. She leaves behind her childhood spent in hiding during the years of the military dictatorship. She also leaves Petra, her seven year old sister. Two decades later, Petra also becomes an actress and goes to New York in search of Elena. When she finally finds Elena in an unexpected place, she has to learn to let her go.

"This mystery. I feel dark, in darkness, which will never end. I don’t dare wish to work in theater, cinema, dance, singing. Because I’ve lived them and moments later I no longer had their light and didn’t know what, what for nor why I did them, and the same sadness would take over. I feel so sick. If only I could vomit. Not even that. I feel weak, a coward and ashamed before life and everyone. I want to die. Reason? So many it would be ridiculous to mention. I give up. I give up because my heart’s so sad I feel I have the right to no longer wander with this body that occupies space and keeps on shattering what I have that’s so very fragile.
I want to disappear. This time I was not supposed to fight.”
