Plot & Details
A woman struggles to make sense of life through her art in this bold independent drama from filmmaker Murilo Salles. Camila (Leandra Leal) is in her mid-twenties and her life has been thrown into chaos ever since her boyfriend threw her out of their apartment during a bitter argument. Camila's ambition is to become a writer, and she posts regularly on her blog, entitled "Camila Jam." However, Camila wants to take her work into a different direction, and she throws herself head first into life in search of inspiration. As Camila struggles with alcohol, unsettled emotions and relationships with abusive men, it becomes increasingly obvious that her skills as a writer aren't all she needs to sort out if she wants to truly understand her life and her career. Nome Proprio (aka Camila Jam) received its North American premiere at the 2009 Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, California.
