Event Details

Formally audacious, with a radical spirit of transgression and a hyper-present sense of physicality, Brazil produces one of the richest, more colourful and heterogeneous cinemas in the world. Dissident bodies and Resistance are at the core of this programme of films. Much has been written about Brazilian LGBTQ community’s contribution to contemporary cinema, and this programme is no exception, as we will celebrate diversity and plurality beyond binary choices. You’ll sing and you’ll dance to these films. A very physical programme where bodies are the protagonist, stomping, hitting, dancing bodies.

The programme will also touch on ideas around identity, home, community, memory and despair, as well as direct clash, resistance and satire aimed at the Bolsonaro government with nostalgia, angst and rage against the Brazilian political machine.
