CHICAGO – In a story that could be happening right now, Brazilian director Carolina Jabor adapted a stage play into “Liquid Truth,” about a swim teacher (portrayed by Daniel de Oliveira) who experiences a smear campaign by a parent on social media after being accused of being too familiar with of his students.

The very intriguing film keeps the situation vague, as the accusation hangs in the air while the swim teacher ponders his fate, often through actions that would place his guilt or innocence in doubt. The use of the smear campaign online is very relevant, as rumors blow up into blatant incriminations against his character, without proper investigation or trial. The title is a poetic indication of the film’s perspective.

In the following Podtalk, HollywoodChicago.com spoke to director Carolina Jabor and lead actor Daniel de Oliveira regarding the approach and the themes of “Liquid Truth,” and how they use social media after their experience with the film.


“Liquid Truth” will screen at the 53rd Chicago International Film Festival on October 21st, 2017 (4pm), at the AMC River East 21, 322 East Illinois Street, Chicago. Click here for film schedules, information and to purchase tickets.

  • Bobby Pin Girls

    CHICAGO – The “breeder years” are difficult on everyone, as the biological imperative becomes overwhelming and the couplings that result yield both discovery and misadventure. Nothing Without a Company’s new play “Bobby Pin Girls” highlight two such Millennial women, roommates who are having man trouble, although the argument can be made that it’s eternally “boy trouble.” The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through December 3rd, 2017. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Transformers 5 front

    CHICAGO – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).
