Professor Anna-Lisa Halling of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese speaks with IC co-director Doug Weatherford about The Year My Parents Went on Vacation (Brazil, 2006, dir. Cao Hamburger). The pair consider the historical, geographical, and cultural context of the film and suggest, in particular, that the film celebrates a young protagonist’s coming-of-age in a moment in which Brazil suffers under a military dictatorship while celebrating the nation’s victory at the 1970 World Cup.
