Postcards From Brazil

Thursday October 24 @ 6:30 pm

This program will also screen on Sunday, 10/27 at 11am

With the election of Jair Bolsonaro in 2018, the world’s eyes suddenly turned to Brazil. But the country’s history with oppression of LGBTQ+, Afro-Brazilian, and low-income communities has been a complicated one for quite some time. POSTCARDS FROM BRAZIL provides an essential and intersectional platform for the strong voices of marginalized populations, and celebrates the queer and trans lovers, fighters, and everyday Brazilians working toward lives free from discrimination.

Total Running Time: 99 min

Presented in partnership with Latin Reel.
