Rodrigo Felha – Brazil 2014 – 71m

Portuguese with English Subtitles, UK Premiere

 

The film shows the life of the LGBT community in the slums of Rio de Janeiro. There are gay people in slums and gay people in more expensive neighborhoods, but here the subject is dealt with according to other issues – trafficking, evangelical churches and the neighborhood. The film also addresses the common issues of homosexuals and transsexuals: homophobia, prejudice, the family‟s attitude, work and everyday life. Despite the adversities, each character lives a daily life in their community and tells how they reinvented themselves through music, dance, politics and studying.
