Synopsis

A portrait of transgender musician and artist Linn da Quebrada, who uses her body and performances as weapons to fight machismo, transphobia, and racism. She speaks of her growing up as a black queer in São Paulo’s favelas, and the challenges of breaking into Brazil’s heteronormative funk scene.

Our take

In times of turmoil and distress, the voice of an artist can instill hope and inspire change. The full-body performances of Linn da Quebrada do just that, raging for Brazilians who can no longer put up with intolerance and repression. A strong polemic inside a tender portrait of a vital artist.
