The feature-length, hybrid autofiction film revolves around the search for new Brazilian identities at both the personal and national levels. Curvelo plays himself; he reconstructs his national identity by investigating his own ancestry through archives as well as interacting with other Brazilians (both real and fictional). The film's narrative connects real events around the 2022 presidential race and its aftermath with fictional quests for reinventing personal identities and visions of a new Brazil. These symbolic reconstructions will be presented in the form of visual performances, interviews and interactions with other Brazilian citizens.
Marcus Curvelo is a filmmaker, actor and film researcher and works on autofiction and creative documentaries about contemporary Brazil.
