Two-channel video installation | COLOR | SOUND | 25′ | 2018 [UNRELEASED]
The film is a two-channel documentary which is part of a project of transmedia storytelling about Família Stronger, a LGBTQIA+ collective of Sao Paulo’s periphery. It portrays a single day which encampasses both a lunch get-together and one of the historical manifestations against the 2016’s Brazilian coup d’état.
In the first part of the film, we can appreciate many dialogues that reveal the dynamics of kinship and family that operate within the collective. Those dynamics bypass the traditional blood ties with which we usually perceive the establishing of traditional euroamerican family social relations.
On the second part, the characters lead the spectators to the political setting of contemporary Brazil characterized by street manifestations. Despite the fact these riots were a daily presence in our big city’s routine, the scenes show both an enormous social mobilisation around the paths of Brazilian political life and the truculent response of the State and the police in order to repress the legitimate and democratic right to protest.
