This is not art

“This is not art” aims to discuss artistic censorship in authoritarian governments, in light of recent episodes that have been happening in Brazil.

It is a film about the importance of art and it seeks to show how much artists help to lead the spirit of a time, preserving memory, and pointing to the future.

Uyra -The Rising Forest

Brazil leads the world in murders of trans people, indigenous folk and environmental activists. Emerson is all three. A biologist, art educator, and descendant of an indigenous nation, the 29yo is also the non-binary eco-warrior drag queen Uyra, part human, part forest being. Emerson/Uyra are revolutionizing environmental activism, performing arts, leading the queer scene in the Amazon and disclosing urgent messages from the spirits of the forest.

You didn’t know about me

Rejane, Pedro, Fatima, Fabiano and their friends prepare to create their own films. In researching what they mean, they go through their memories, their reflections on life and the world, building their own narrative. Between their world and the world of others, in “You didn’t know about me” they build a powerful reflection on madness, love, loneliness and the challenges that life imposes on us.
