WA PREMIERE

Seventeen-year-old Sofia is a key member of her volleyball team and her skills mean that opportunities are within her reach, but then she finds out she is pregnant, and in Brazil abortion is illegal… 

What follows is a coming-of-age drama about queer-hood, friendship, family, community and people with uterus experiences, deftly directed by debut feature director Lillah Halla, with a powerful, largely young, cast who deliver strong performances and invest the film with a genuine energy. 

Winning the 2023 FIPRESCI prize at Cannes Film Festival, as well as Best Ibero-American Film at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Best Director and Best Editor at Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival, Prix Fierte Montreal at the Festival du nouveau cinema, and Best Film and Best Film with Gender Perspective at the Huelva Latin American Film Festival, Power Alley is a strong, bold debut. 

“A vivid, dynamic piece of filmmaking driven by the sparky connections between the teammates and a terrific, pulsing electronic score” – Wendy Ide,  Screen Daily
