Bixa Travesty

Teddy Award for Best Documentary/Essay Film, Berlinale 2018

Dir. Kiko Goifman and Claudia Priscila, Brazil, 2018, 75 mins

Black Brazilian transgender singer Linn da Quebrada weaponizes the trans body and music for political protest. Linn and childhood friend Jup do Bairro use extravagantly costumed music performances to dazzle audiences while opposing their country’s white heteronormative order. Figuring her embodied existence as resistance, Linn eschews the role of cis woman, choosing a fluid gender identity instead. Full of funny and intimate moments, the film advocates for personal choice against a society that imposes static gender identity.
