Drama Film at ASFF: Graça (Grace) from Anna Clara Peltier, Eterna Filmes

The Aesthetica Short Film Festival’s drama category has a rich selection of outstanding films on show across the four days, covering a range of topics and narrative styles. Film is a great communicative tool, and these short stories explore individual experiences and cultural trends in a diverse and exiting way. One such film is the drama Graça (Grace), directed by Anna Clara Peltier.

Grace tries to overcome her physical limitations and at the same time deal with the changes and discovery of her own body. Under the water she dives into her private universe. The water imagery emphasises the hard work Grace does to work with her team of synchronised swimmers, while also reflecting the calm exploration she undergoes on her own as she discovers changes to her growing body.

The drama films will be screened across a diverse range of venues including 1331, ASFF’s official bar and restaurant and location for the Friday Night Party; the medieval King’s Manor and Middletons Hotel amongst a number of other venues. There will also be several opportunities to network with filmmakers and industry professionals at masterclasses, panel discussion and daily networking sessions.
