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.

  • Speech & Debate (stage play)

    CHICAGO – “Speech & Debate,” the latest production from the mighty Brown Paper Box Company, continues their tradition of thinking outside that “box” in presenting storefront theater that makes a statement and a difference. “Speech” goes inside America by showcasing the outsiders… those who create art because they can’t get it right in real life. This non-equity Chicago stage play premiere is finely tuned and wonderfully acted, and runs through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • We're Gonna Be Okay

    CHICAGO – The 1960s were a time of historical social transition. The movements – civil rights, feminist, gay rights – all had roots in that tumultuous decade. The Chicago premiere of Basil Kreimendahl’s “We’re Gonna Be Okay” echoes all of those movements in its characters, and collides them against the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the American Theater Company through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
