Director: Filipe Matzembacher, Marcio Reolon
Cast: Nicolas Vargas, Sophia Starosta, Luiz Paulo Vasconcellos
Brazil, 2016, BluRay, color, 100’

Young directors Reolon and Matzembacher whose fiction "Seashore" was appraised in last year's edition, are back screen with 4 colorful episodes each lasts 25 minutes.

Four exuberant, colorful episodes plunge us into the long nights and hazy mornings of a group of young bohemians and the army boy they adopt as one of their own.  As the film's young heroes battle homophobia and gender discrimination of all kinds, they remain empowered by each other, dancing through it all, and their sense of pride is truly inspiring.

Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
