Paraty, a Brazil - USA production, set in New York, Rio and Paraty, Brazil, will feature multi-national cast including Brazilian, American and European actors and musicians. It will be helmed by producer/director Vern Oakley, whose previous independent feature, A Modern Affair, starring Stanley Tucci, was distributed by Columbia TriStar and gathered numerous awards at festivals.
The film will include an original Brazilian soundtrack featuring both classic and new Brazilian songs. This music will play a key role in the dramatic story line which revolves around a classical musician who has lost her will to play and rediscovers her passion through the people and music of Brazil. This film and soundtrack will once more take Brazilian rhythms around the world.
Tribe Pictures will follow in the tradition of Y Tu Mama Tambien and Talk To Her - movies that succeeded internationally and feature complex relationships, great stories, photographically lush locations, and strong female lead roles.
