A Brazilian trans advocate fights to keep her community safe from Bolsonaro’s hate-filled regime in this powerful personal documentary
Ele não - not him. That’s one thing of which Indianara Siqueira, trans sex worker and founder/mother of the lifesaving communal LGBT Casa Nem in Rio de Janeiro, is certain. No to the potential election of an authoritarian, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, racist, and science-denying regime of "Brazilian Trump" Jair Bolsonaro. In this essential and up-close documentary, award-winning NewFest alum Adam Golub (SKIN) follows Indianara's relentless organizing leading up to one of the most turbulent times in recent global memory. From her historic run for City Council (alongside the late, revered Marielle Franco), to her continuous fight to keep the trans sex workers of Casa Nem safe and housed, Indianara is a force of radical change. Unapologetically honest, thrilling, and personal, this Outfest Grand Jury Prize Winner for Best Documentary is best watched as an internationally-prescient anti-facist instruction manual in which the only acceptable end goal is freedom for all.
