O Que Pode Um Corpo

DIR: Marcio Picoli, Victor di Marco . 14 min . RS/Brazil . 2020

A baby is born, but does not cry. A body screams and is not heard. Paints that run in a promised future do not reach a person with a disability. Victor makes himself the canvas in a universe of absent painters.

Adeus aos Livros

DIR: Diego Quinderé de Carvalho . 12 min . RJ/Brazil, Portugal . 2020

A second-hand bookstore in the outskirts of Lisbon is overcrowded from floor to ceiling with books of all kinds. In addition to precious rarities, less relevant books, a few remnants of torn papers and old random magazines. José Ribeiro is a 76-year-old bookseller facing the impossibility of organizing his shop. And now he battles between preservation of memory and excessive accumulation.

Portugal Pequeno

DIR: Victor Quintanilha . 20 min . RJ/Brazil . 2020

Jonatan, also known as MC Xerelete, has the dream of becoming a famous funk singer and, with that, providing the comfortable life that he sees in the media for himself and his father. Until this happens, both of them work as fishermen at the Guanabara Bay. Together, they face the responsibilities and obstacles that life throws at them.

Corpo Oco

DIR: Pedro Severien . 22 min . PE/Brazil . 2020

A couple of artists (a painter/performer and a photographer) experience a double isolation – isolation from the city, because they live in a studio in the old part of the center of Recife but do not interact with its surroundings, and an affective/conjugal isolation established between themselves. "Hollow body" captures the spectrum of a separation.
