What we love about this film

With otherworldly and saturated pastel cinematography adorned with nature and wildlife, Madiano Marcheti's debut tells an eerie story of the discovery of trans woman body, Madalena. Though the film provides glimpses of clues as to what has happened, we never fully understand or know how and why which reiterates the ongoing tragedy happening today with Brazil having the highest rate of murders of trans people of any country in the world. This film may be triggering for some but we feel Marcheti’s story is one that must be shared.
