THE Spcine is present in the Uncensored Summer Festival with the showing of approximately ten recent films (divided into feature films, mediums and short films), on January 18th and 19th, at the São Paulo Cultural Center (CCSP). The initiative aims to give visibility to productions with LGBTQIA + themes and to support freedom of expression and the diversity of Brazilian cinema.
One of the highlights of the program is the Brazilian actress, singer and songwriter Linn da Quebrada, which will be represented at the festival with two films: Electric Body, in Marcelo Caetano and the documentary Bixa Travesty, co-directed by Claudia Priscilla and Kiko Goifman, which follows the trajectory of Linn and other artists in the São Paulo music scene. These two productions will be shown on the 19th, respectively at 15h and 19h.
Other highlights of the event are the LGBTQIA + short film session, on the 18th, starting at 4 pm (including two films that will be shown at the Rotterdam Festival in 2020 – Vando Vulgo Vedita and Swinguerra) and the exhibition, on the 19th, at 3 pm, of The Invisible Life, directed by Karim Aïnouz and awarded in the last edition of the Festival de Cannes. The feature would be shown to Ancine’s servers in December, but it was vetoed by the agency’s management, of which the film also had its posters removed from the walls.
In addition, posters of recent national productions will be exhibited at the CCSP throughout the festival, including Baroness, Divine Love, Los Silencios and White Leaves, Black Leaves.
