Mr. Leather

New York Premiere

Dir. Daniel Nolasco, Brazil, 2019, 85 mins

Get up close and personal with Brazil’s leather community in Daniel Nolasco’s playful documentary about the titular competition. Nolasco follows judges, past winners, and current contenders for the title of Mr. Leather Brazil as they prepare for the annual contest, where one participant will win the honor of representing their country at Chicago’s annual International Mr. Leather contest.

Combining vérité footage with stylized sequences, MR. LEATHER keeps its audience on their toes through its illuminating, playful, and uncompromising depiction of this kinky subculture. Sex, activism, and community-building collide to make MR. LEATHER a one-of-a-kind glimpse into São Paulo’s fetish scene.

Cast: Dom Barbubo, Leandro Rebello, Heitor Werneck, Francine Zaqui
