These three short, narrative works blend fiction and documentary. Through music, dialogues and dance the artists evoke the complex interconnectedness in Brazilian popular culture of class, gender, race, religion and the economy.
Together these films bear witness to the powerful do-it-yourself culture in Northeast Brazil that is helping to shape a new collective identity through new music and dance cultures, and emergent religious movements.
