BRAZIL | 94 minutes | 2017

Breath of fresh air from Brazil in this debut that embraces desire and sensuality freely expressed. Marcelo Caetano was inspired by Walt Whitman’s poem I Sing the Body Electric to make his first film, a portrait of a 23-year-old gay man freely — and joyously — navigating between friends and lovers in frenzied São Paulo. Leaving all judgment aside, the filmmaker brings compassion to this celebration of hope.
