Our Latin American Cinema season begins this new year with a new theme: #QueerLatino!


An erotic tale of identity and sexuality set in modern day Brazil.

Elias works as an assistant designer in a clothing factory.  As the distance between his professional and personal life closes, he explores his desires, invigorated by the freedom offered through his companions.  Against the warnings of his superiors, Elias takes to socialising into the night and sleeping with his co-workers.

This feature debut by Marcelo Caetano captures the beauty and delicate excitement of sexual awakening, as seen through the intense colour and vibrancy of São Paulo.

In Portuguese with English subtitles.

A satisfying, warmhearted film whose understated charms leave a pleasant glow
— Jay Weissberg, VARIETY

Its lively cinematography, contrasts the colourful and intense colours of the night scenes with the dull creams and greys of the work environment. There couldn’t be a clearer distinction between the professional and private, between appearances and essence...

Caetano is exploring a world in which there are no boundaries, and this approach gives the film a blast of energy. His intent was to tell a story about people who aren’t afraid of sex or sexuality, and it’s refreshing to see these kinds of people depicted on-screen for a change
