Is it a knife because… (2022, 25’) - Sirah Foighel Brutmann & Eitan Efrat
a film made at home, it is born by processes of film-making and parenthood crushing into each other.
The film carefully challenges notions of authority. The authority of parents, of image producers, and that which lurks outside the window.
Is it a knife because… entangles love and violence with the most honest attempt to understand where light comes from.
Olho da Rua (2022, 25’) - Jonathas de Andrade
Starring a cast of 100 people, Olho da Rua (Out Loud) is divided into eight acts and presents performance propositions in front of the camera as exercises of the gaze. Simple actions are presented, such as looking and admiring oneself in front of a mirror, improvising an assembly and saying messages to the camera, representing a collective party making the public square a great stage, or facing the camera lens that it's the eye of the beholder, whether on the streets or on the movie screen when it's ready. Made in two days at Praça do Hipódromo, in Recife, the film is made up of a cast of homeless people, linked to public shelters and non-governmental initiatives to support the vulnerable population.
