Brazilian filmmaker Marília Rocha presents a portrait of four young women negotiating the tricky path between adolescence and adulthood in this documentary. Filmed in a small village in Eastern Brazil's Espinhaco Mountains, A Falta Que Me Faz (aka Like Water Through Stone) follows a handful of teenage girls who are still learning the ropes of adult relationships, but nevertheless face grown-up responsibilities; some already have children, and a few signal their commitment to their boyfriends by carving their names into their flesh, leaving scars that function like tattoos. At the same time, some of the girls still haven't learned to tell an infatuation from lasting love, and one longs for the days of arranged marriages, when their parents could be counted on to set them up with someone who could provide for them. Like Water Through Stone received its international premiere at the 2010 Rotterdam International Film Festival.
