Farewell Amor


After 17 years apart, Angolan immigrant Walter is joined in the U.S. by his wife and teen daughter. Sharing a cramped Brooklyn apartment, they quickly discover that the years of separation and struggle have turned them into strangers. Esther, his wife, has become a religious zealot, and Walter is ashamed to admit he doesn't feel the same fire for her. Sylvia, his daughter, whom Walter left when she was just months old, is too dutiful to show the pain she feels. As they struggle to reconnect, they each rely on the muscle memory of dance to remember themselves and one another.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
