What are people saying?

  • nico's rating of the film Hunting Season

    "Have you heard about the assassination of gays?" "Yes, I have" "What do you think of it?" "I agree they must be killed". With this terrifying dialogue taken from an interview done in the streets of São Paulo, Rita Moreira opens Hunting Season, a portrait of how homophobia shapes brazilian society. It is really nice to see interviews from some of the most important queer latin artists of the time.
