[MEU QUERIDO SUPERMERCADO]


Grocery store employees, today's essential workers, get star treatment in MY DARLING SUPERMARKET (made prior to the pandemic). Set within a bright, colorful supermercado in São Paulo, Brazil, this charming, funny documentary glides through a seemingly endless array of vibrantly designed shelves and displays, but it's the store's employees who take center stage. Rodrigo (in bread) discusses quantum physics and parallel universes; Santo (a forklift operator) builds video game cities; a security officer tracks possible shoplifters on closed circuit TVs ("Two suspects near the condensed milk!"); Ivan (a baker) likes to dress as Goku, a Manga character; and then there's the artist who lovingly paints the prices. A panoply of individuals with fears, hopes and questions about their place in the universe are celebrated in a quirky portrait that juxtaposes their idiosyncrasies with the assumed mundanity of bringing food to our tables.
