About Divine Love:

2020. 101 m. Gabriel Mascaro. Outsider Pictures. Brazil. Portuguese with English subtitles. NR.

It’s the year 2027 in this dystopian, fluorescent sci-fi story of Joana (Brazilian star Dira Paes), who uses her bureaucratic job to convince divorcing couples to stay together. Her secret weapon is Divine Love, an evangelical cult she belongs to that mixes a little swinging and group fun into its more traditional prayers and services. Joana herself can’t seem to get pregnant by her own husband, so in an attempt to save her own marriage, she prays regularly at a very unusual religious drive-in, looking for a miracle to help her conceive. Divine Love is not only an amped up, sexy, and witty take on a future full of dance parties, ritualistic orgies, cults, and fundamentalist Christianity, but also a critique of today’s right-wing-led Brazil.

This film contains mildly graphic sexual situations—viewer discretion is advised.

Take part in a free livestream Q&A to discuss Divine Love on Sunday, November 15 at 8:00 pm EST with director Gabriel Mascaro (Neon Bull) and acclaimed U.S. film producer Ted Hope (Good Machine). Advance registration is required for this free Zoom event. Click HERE to register.

Divine Love is presented with support from the JBFC World Cinema Fund, sponsored by Wine Enthusiast.
