RITES OF PASSAGE tells the story of two characters typical of Brazil’s Northeastern backlands, Santo and Guerreiro, who, after they have died, get into a boat belonging to Caronte, boatman of the River of Death, who induces them to reflect on their deeds and choices in response to the events that life dealt them. Through their rites of passage - birth, baptism, transition from youth to adulthood, death, and transcendence - they undergo self-analysis, as they discuss the things they experienced in the dense, dramatic, and adverse context of life in the backlands. These experiences gave rise to charismatic, controversial individuals who are followed by multitudes in search of a fairer, more promising land.

The film RITES OF PASSAGE asks the audience to think about the most fundamental issues to human beings as they pass from life to death: what have I done with my life? What were the consequences of my acts?

The free association between the historical figures Conselheiro and Lampião and the two fictional characters here is a reminder that the same universal questions can be found in folk culture all over the world.

In RITES OF PASSAGE we will present the popular ballads, worksites, regional flora and fauna, folklore, customs, apparel, habits, vocabulary, accents, etc., of a people with little access to the comforts of civilization. They are superstitious, deeply religious, and have pure values
