The screening is followed by a talk with Shirley Rodrigues
In the outskirts of Belo Horizonte, favelas are given female names. Juliana Antunes and her almost entirely female crew film two friends, Leid and Andreia, just when Andreia is about to move to the neighbouring slum called Baronesa. Antunes depicts the life in and outside of the makeshift homes from a purely female perspective, portraying a life only a few low walls or metal sheets away from gang warfare that is never shown, but whose violence pervades the main characters’ daily fates.
Director: Juliana Antunes
Brazil 2017, 70 min
