Iracema, a Transamazonian Affair
(Iracema, uma tranza amazönica)

by Orlando SENNA & Jorge BODANSKY


Tião Brasil Grande, a truck driver travelling on the Transamazonian highway, meets Iracema, an indigenous teenage girl. They travel together for a while, then he drops her off in a tiny village by the highway. One day Tião finds a toothless and sick Iracema in a third-class brothel. He refuses to take her on board his truck and leaves her to her sad fate in the middle the road.
