CAROLINA

The short film Carolina seeks to identify the place that Carolina Teixeira occupies in the social-political-cultural context in which we live. Framing this woman is giving visibility to countless women, northeastern Brazilians, artists, and disabled people in Brazil. From your point of view we can perceive a different world. Or the best translation of her world would be the dance that she carries in her relationship with space, matter, movement, in her own day life choreography?
