Rio 2096: A Story of Love and Fury (Portuguese: Uma História de Amor e Fúria) is a 2013 Brazilian animated drama film written and directed by Luiz Bolognesi.

The film follows important moments in the history of Brazil, narrated by a character who lives almost 600 years ago, seeking for the resurrection of his beloved Janaína, and coming to his current life in the year 2096.[2] It was one of the 19 submitted for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in the 86th edition.[3]


The film is set in four dates in the history of Brazil: 1566, when the country was discovered by the Portuguese explorers, 1825, in events during slavery; 1968, during the high point of the authoritarian military dictatorship, and 2096, when there will be a war over water. The film narrates the love between Janaina and a native warrior who, when dying, takes the form of a bird. For six centuries, the story of the couple survives through these four stages in the history of Brazil.[4]
