Cold Tropics

Recife Frio

25 mins
9 / 10 (1162)


Strange climate change makes Recife, in the Northeast region of Brazil, a cold city. A foreign TV documentary examines the effects of change on an entire culture that has always lived in a hot climate.

MUBI's take

This mockumentary short is full of inspired comic tangents, including a professional Santa Claus trying to find comfort in a newly chilly city of Brazil. Only growing in relevance today, Kleber Mendonça Filho’s inventive vision of adapting to climate disaster is dystopian yet delightfully witty.
