College-bound Brazilian student Gabriel (charismatically played by João Pedro Zappa) decides to take a year off to travel in Africa, his backpack full of dreams, before beginning his studies at UCLA. Gabriel has a friendly, outgoing spirit that engages easily with the locals, usually referring to newly-met strangers as “brother.” But as much as he wants to blend in, he still carries an entitlement that constantly brands him as a tourist. After ten months on the road, he arrives in Kenya to a joyful reunion with his girlfriend Cristina (Caroline Abras). Gabriel’s spiritual quest takes him on alone to the heights of Mount Mulanje in Malawi, his final destination. Based on the true story of Gabriel Buchmann, a friend and classmate of director/co-writer Fellipe Barbosa (Casa Grande), Gabriel and the Mountain is shot on the beautiful locations where it happened; all the cast except the two leads are played by the real people who met Gabriel. Winner of two awards at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, including the France 4 Visionary Award. (Partially subtitled)
