Third Horizon Film Festival presents the Florida premiere of Azougue Nazaré.

A brilliantly boisterous mix of music, dance and the supernatural, Azougue Nazaré drops us into the sugarcane fields of Pernambuco in northeastern Brazil, where the villagers of Nazaré da Mata are preparing for Maracatu, the annual carnival. Tiao, an average working guy, flamboyantly disappears into a transgender alter ego every year for the celebrations, which doesn’t sit well with his wife, Darlene. She’s under the influence of an evangelical Christian preacher, a former Maracatu master who fulminates in his sermons against the carnival’s Africa-derived rituals, and is determined to end them. Featuring a non-professional cast of actual Maracatu practitioners, this is an endlessly entertaining—and supremely funny—clash between the sacred and the profane.
