The protagonist of this film is the reclusive, introspective Ukranian-Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector (1920−1977). It is based on a single TV interview broadcast only after her death. Why Clarice Lispector? There are similarities between both our family backgrounds in Brazil. But mainly what she says in the interview corresponds to a feeling of ‘ in-betweenness’ or hiatus which translates what Vivian Ostrovsky feels today.
