BRAZIL | 84 minutes | 2019

Shot between 2016 and 2018 in the run-up to the election of Jair Bolsonaro and premiering at Cannes as part of the festival’s 2019 ACID lineup, Indianara takes us to Casa Nem, a trans, gay and lesbian shelter in Rio de Janeiro. Through violent demonstrations, electoral events, bereavements and pool parties, we follow the charismatic Indianara Siqueira, a modern-day warrior, as she leads her ‘troops’ with an iron will and inexhaustible passion. A powerful, vital work co-directed by Marcelo Barbosa and Aude Chevalier-Beaumel that brings a frightening reality all too vividly to life.

In collaboration with Cinéma sous les étoiles de Funambules Médias and Massimadi.

"Indianara looks at a charismatic revolutionary fighting for transgender rights in Brazil." Screendaily
