by Miguel Antunes Ramos
Dragons is a documentary about the relationship between image and power. About the role of images in the political earthquake that Brazil is going through. The film starts from the analysis of Pedro Américo’s painting Independência or Morte! (Independence or Death), to frame the creation of a imagery of state, inaugurated in the painting and untouched to this day; reaching to an analysis of Bolsonaro’s campaign imagery – understanding how he recreates, denies, and tensions this official imagery.

No light comes in here
by Karoline Maia
I spent many years of my life being taken by my mother to the homes where she was employed as a domestic worker. Later, when I was about to graduate from college, she and I were working in the same office space. In that place, I wrote texts and produced videos while my mother cleaned up all the mess left behind. After graduating, I decided to investigate the roots of domestic work in my country, the last one in the world to abolish slavery.
