Dirs. Claudia Priscilla, Kiko Goifman. 2018, 75 mins. In Portuguese with English subtitles. The self-described “gender terrorist,” singer Linn da Quebrada is the star of this sympathetic and intimate documentary portrait, which goes behind the scenes of the performer’s radio show and highly charged stage acts. A film-manifesto about femininity and power, and an exorcism of hurt, Goifman’s film is delightfully tongue-in-cheek, yet also forcefully on-message. Teddy Award at Berlinale. 

Preceded by:

Heaven (Dir. Luiz Roque. 2016, 10 mins.) In an apocalyptic future, a “high-risk” population is under threat of deliberate contamination and forceful quarantine. Roque’s other works have screened internationally, including in New York at MoMA PS1 and at Kunsthalle, in Vienna. He has been nominated for Brazil’s top art prize, Prêmio Pipa.

We Are All Here (Dirs. Chico Santos, Rafael Melim. 2017, 21 mins.) Young trans woman Rosa does not have much going for her except anger and moxy. When she is kicked out from home, and sees her entire community facing eviction, her rage boils over. Santos and Melim bring their community-theater skills to collaborate with real-life performer Rosa Luz, who shines in a cathartic piece in dialogue with the music video tradition. Best Short at the Tiradentes Film Festival.
