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.

  • Jesus Christ Superstar, Lyric Opera

    CHICAGO – As a wee lad, I would often go into my parent’s record collection. One day, out of the blue, that brown double album with the gold embossed angels appeared, like a gift from the divine. “Jesus Christ Superstar” began as a record album “rock opera” in 1970, evolved to a Broadway show and film, and then was interpreted through a myriad of stage revivals over the years. The latest is an exciting piece of stagecraft at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. The show has a various evening/matinee run through May 20th, 2018.
