YOU CAN CALL ME

(PODE ME CHAMAR)

Belo Horizonte, 2019, 27'

Minas Competition 2

Based on five words, this film offers a portrayal (one among many other possibilities) of Belo Horizonte’s Drag Queen scene. Throughout the interviews, the common issues of struggle and the singularities of each performing artist emerge. Here, the body is seen as a party, a place for invention and self-fabulation where the celebration reveals its political strength. From the preparations to the actual performances, the short film invites us to dive into the poetics, words and the minuteness of each Drag production.
