Andre stumbles upon a journal belonging to Cristiano, an injured factory worker. As Andre flips through the pages, Cristiano’s life experiences are lifted from the journal and onto the screen, revealing the adventures of an individual on a 10-year journey in search of fulfilment in rural Brazil.

 

Synopsis

Andre, a teenager, lives in an industrial town in Brazil near an old aluminum factory. One day, a factory worker, Cristiano, suffers an accident. Asked to go to Cristiano’s house to pick up clothes and documents, Andre stumbles on a notebook, and it’s here that Araby begins — or, rather, transforms. As Andre reads from the journal entries, we are plunged into Cristiano’s life, into stories of his wanderings, adventures, and loves. Beautifully written and filmed, Araby is a fable-like road movie about a young man who sets off on a ten-year journey in search of a better life.
