An enjoyable movie about a well-to-do, young black girl who lives in a mostly white society. Joana wants to be on a popular dance show and she and her family have to learn the hard way that the world is not always fair. Interestingly enough, the very well-meaning parents do not learn the lesson as well as the young girl and her older brother. This is fun to watch for kids and adults and reminds us that we still live in a world with forced limitations, but also that we can always find new ways to succeed. Well filmed, beautiful pacing and great story line. Portuguese with English subtitles. Submitted from Sao Paolo, Brazil. Not available for online screening.
Joana has the same dream as all young Brazilian girls in the 80s: she wants to be a Paquita, a dancer on Xuxa's TV show. Her family is wealthy and will support her. However, there is a problem. She is black and Xuxa never had a black Paquita on her team.
