Argemira is a visually rich documentary shot in Recife, Brazil. The documentary narrates the life of an 85-year-old nun who lives in a convent in the busy streets of downtown Recife. The film uses powerful visual aids to illustrate the emotional journey of Maria Madalena, a woman who had to overcome numerous obstacles to achieve her childhood dream of becoming a nun. She reflects on the challenges related to her womanhood, family and her ground-breaking condition within the Catholic church that defies centuries of traditions.
