Director Statement

In 2018, when I arrived President Dilma Rousseff had just been removed from office, the far right was constantly increasing its power with Jair Bolsonaro at its head, Lula had just been imprisoned and police violence was only increasing.

More than ever it was a question of fighting to keep one's rights and to acquire new ones, more than ever it was necessary to be united in front of adversity and to support each other even if opinions were sometimes divergent.

I was deeply changed during these few months in Brazil, I became aware of many struggles, of my privileges as a white, European, cis-gender person and I understood how much weight my role as an ally also had.
So it was as an ally that I went through this film process, which was grueling at times.

I don't want to take anyone's place, my microphone and camera were there ready to collect life stories but I could never speak for these people. This film is the result of a long process of reflections, of creations, where I put my external glance to the socio-political situation lived by the Brazilian people who are filmed.

I hope that this film will open up avenues for reflection. I want it to be seen by as many people as possible because it reveals realities that are universal, that can resonate in each of us despite our place of life, despite our social status, despite our gender and our age. This film is about them, but it is about each of us.
