Synopsis

After a police assault at a dance party for black people in Brasilia, the lives of two friends change forever: one ends up on a wheel chair, and the other one, trampled by a police horse, looses a leg. But the two young men don’t want to tell their story in a conventional way: they would rather make it up, find new forms of narration from the past, and create an adventurous future where cripples and amputees are not imprisoned bodies. A future where the powerful will finally have to face their responsibilities and be held accountable: is the Brazilian government guilty? Will it ever be put on trial?

Director statement

“The film’s science fiction aspects within the limits of a documentary. The science-fiction fable itself. Hence a rigorous aesthetic of many static plans, almost apocalyptic paintings, dialogical and organic lights to the proposed environment, dystopian scenarios. The sound of the film evokes time travel, war, oppression of the past-present, however a utopian release in the future.”
