Oscuro Barroco

Evangelia Kranioti, France, Greece, 2018, 60 min.

Obscuro Barroco is a documentary-fiction about the dizzying heights of gender and metamorphosis. It is also a cinematographic hommage to a land of extremes; the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Following the path of iconic transgender figure Luana Muniz (1961-2017), the film explores different quests for the self through transvestism, carnival and political struggle. In turn, it asks questions about the desire for transformation of the body, both intimate and social.
