Little Secret, produced by Ocean Films, has been chosen as Brazil’s official entry to the Best Foreign Language Film at the 2017 Academy Awards.
Inspired by an incredible true story, the moving drama follows the paths of three families bound together by a heavy secret. Shot in English and Portuguese, Little Secret brings together an international cast of acclaimed British actress, Fionnula Flanagan, renowned Brazilian actress Julia Lemmertz, Maria Flor, and New Zealander, Errol Shand. Based on the tale of director David Schurmann’s adopted sister, the film centres on the resilience and hope that grows in the face of tragic events.
