Dir. Ismael Caneppele. 2017, 70 mins. In Portuguese with English subtitles. This coming-of-age LGBTQ romance restages its young protagonist’s coming out and transformation with the moral support from a professional actress. This charismatic hybrid explores the possibilities of an intimate digital camera, and mixes real-life situations and persons with fictional elements. Winner of the Art Doc award at Sheffield Doc/Fest.

Preceded by Terremoto Santo (Dirs. Bárbara Wagner, Benjamin de Búrca. 2017, 20 mins.). Combining observation and performance, Wagner and de Búrca draw upon the oral richness as well as the eerie social contradictions of the Evangelical musical. Their work has been exhibited in numerous shows in and outside Brazil, and nominated for the country’s main art prize, Prêmio Pipa.
