Country: Netherlands, Brazil
Direction: Douwe Dijkstra
It is dawn in Sao Paulo, but today is not just any old day. On this occasion, we don’t see the streets of Brazil from the tourist’s point of view. Reality is presented in a new way before our eyes. A green screen opens up through the crowd to reveal the contrasts of a country that is going through political upheaval, but never loses its passion for music, art and pace of life. A chroma transported by hand is used to allow us to dominate at least a piece of reality. The result is a reflection that is as bold and committed to Brazilian society as a protest song to the rhythm of samba.
