HALF MOON IN ME

(MEIA LUA FALCIFORME)

Paraná, 2019, 22'

Brazilian Competition 2

An important document of a condition of barbarism, of how human dimension narrows to the point of not comprising certain lives. A life filled with pain. Unmeasured prejudice and physical pain that are not estimated in medical protocols. The refinement of necropolitics translates into medical practices which neglect the most common hereditary disease in Brazil. However, despite the pain, there is poetry, a burning desire to live, and the courage to face daily challenges.
