Description: In 1937, at a school in the Trastevere district of Rome, a class image was taken. Nobody should have known that two of the men in the picture would go on to create movie history: they were director Sergio Leone and composer Ennio Morricone. Other man sat between this duo destined for globe fame. What should have become of him? Denise Janzee took the image back to Trastevere to explore the identity of the unknown boy. A taxi driver, an old barber, a retired lawyer, a doctor, a priest, other filmmaker—these are just a several of the locals who puzzle over Janzee’s question. But not everyone sees its importance.

Description: Slowly and elegiacally, the camera glides at first over a forest shrouded in fog, then over a panorama of Rio de Janeiro. An off-screen voice says us that Rio is a factory of dreams and nightmares, a town of transformations. In her essayistic film, director Evangelia Kranioti explores the poetic words of her transgender narrator Luana Muniz, who is herself an icon of Brazil’s queer subculture. Amidst a somnambulistic tide of photos she enters the pulsating globe of monsters of the night. A stream of consciousness from Brazil’s underground flows straight into the heart of the city’s road carnival. In between the masks and the make-up, the young, naked and fresh bodies and a spectacular firework display, folks come into view who have undergone a transformation that makes it hard to clearly ascribe them to any gender. A white clown leads us through the film’s visual universe in which, all of a sudden, raw-faced anti-government protests also place in an appearance
Description: Linn da Quebrada is a black transwoman from impoverished periurban São Paulo; she is also a pop performer who raises her voice for queers of colour from the favelas. Accompanied by her childhood mate and partner in crime, black transwoman and singer Jup do Bairro, her concerts are nothing short of dazzling. Aided by exorbitant costumes and plenty of twerking, her performances are onslaughts of electro vs Brazil’s white heteronormative gender order and the machismo of the country’s funk scene. Personal moments reveal her gentler side: as she showers with mates or cooks with her mother the talk turns to love, racism and poverty. Archive footage in the shape of home videos shows her in intimate performances at a hospital during her own cancer treatment. We start to realise that Linn uses radical nudity as a means to undermine agreed gender roles.
