Reading Film Theatre (RFT) is teaming up with Peccadillo entertainment to bring you the virtual release of Socrates.
From Executive Producer Fernando Meirelles (City of God). Socrates, a handsome 15-year-old, is not just another underage kid living on the margins of society while working the construction sites of São Paulo, he has a purpose. Because of the sudden death of his mother, Socrates has had to fend for himself, trying desperately to earn the rent to keep his run-down apartment and remain out of the clutches of social services and his estranged father.
SOCRATES is the debut feature film from Brazilian-American director Alexandre Moratto. It is the first feature produced by the Querô Institute in Brazil where it was co-written, produced, and acted by at-risk teenagers with the support of UNICEF.
Jim Keogh, RFT director and film enthusiast, has previewed the film and says:
"My heart went out to poor Socrates – a young boy left to fend for himself in a society blithely indifferent to his plight. As Bob Dylan once said: now is the time for your tears."
For just £9.49 you will be able to stream this new release from the comfort of home. The film will be available from 4 September and you will have 48 hours to view the film once purchased.
