TREMEMBÉ, MY LOVE (Tremembé, Meu Amor)

by Humberto Borges

Bra, doc, color, 25 min, 2013

Direction: Humberto Borges

Screenplay: Anahí Borges and Humberto Borges

Production: Anahí Borges

Co-production: Secretary of Culture of São Paulo

Cinematography:  Lucas Kakuda

Editing:  Victor Reis

Sound Editing and Mix: Gus Pereira

Post Production Services: Videocubo

Original Soundtrack:  Fábio Matu and Vico Piovani

 

Synopsis:

 

"Tremembé, My Love" is a lyrical documentary about the neighborhood of Tremembé, São Paulo, Brazil.

 

About the film:

 

”Tremembé is a São Paulo's neighbourhood. To speak of Tremembé is to look around and recognise a personal and collective mythology to be shared. It's as filmmaker and resident of the neighbourhood for 30 years that I see in this documentary the possibility of creating a web of connections within my own community, seeking out memories, connecting ideas, legitimizing the residents, my neighbours, in the act of telling their own stories and reinventing themselves.

 

The resident of Tremembé could be a character found in poems by Carlos Drummond de Andrade: hillbilly archetype, almost like a person from the country side that is in harmony with nature represented by the Cantareira Reserve and its surroundings. With this almost sacred simplicity, combined with the concept of modernization and loss of archaic expressions, is what oriented the selection of objects (tangible and intangible) and the people addressed in the documentary. The history of the neighborhood, for me, is the great clash of civilization: the clash between the archaic and the modern, the rural and the urban, the man occupying his space in nature”.

(HUMBERTO BORGES)

THE ALMIGHTY PETY (Pety Pode Tudo)

by Anahí Borges

Bra, HD, 18 min, color, 2012

Co-Producer Company: Preta Portê Filmes

Written and Directed: Anahí Borges

Production: Gustavo Maximiliano

Executive Production: Juliana Vicente and Anahí Borges

Cinematography: Elena Fedeli

Art Direction: Laura Carvalho

Editing:  Olívia Brenga

Sound Editing:  Guile Martins

Original soundtrack:  Fábio Matu and Vico Piovani

Cast: Moara Ibotira, Nathan Gabriel Silva, Paul Goya, Sylvia Prado, Aury Porto.

 

Synopsis:

 

Pety is a girl with a majestic sense of control of everything around her. One day, walking to school, she believed that has received a warning from the angel Gabriel forsaking the death of her pet named Bunny, a rabbit. The fear of looseness and the desire to control everything lead her to the olimpic attempt to somehow dismiss the prophesied destiny. 

 

About the film:

 

I wanted to create a diverse and idiosyncratic character, valuing in a child their socially accepted traits   of   character   but also point the typical perversities of childhood.  Imaginary fears, unconscious cruelty. The central theme of the story is one of ontological aspirations of human beings: omnipotence, which in childhood is the space of its primitive psychic elaboration. With this short film I meant to work in the record of subtlety, the delicacy and concentration in the experiences, producing life and reality in harmony with unreal and metaphysical elements, because as the Brazilian writer João Guimarães Rosa said: “Everything, moreover, is the tip of a mystery, even the facts. Or lack of them. Doubt? When nothing happens there's a miracle that we're not seeing” - in “Grande Sertão Veredas”. (ANAHÍ BORGES)

by Camila Biau

Bra, HD, 19 min, color, 2012

Editing: Emilia Aidar

Cast: Daniela Glamour Garcia, Érica Martins, Bruno Dalcheco

 

Synopsis:

 

Immersed in the lively night scene in the region of Augusta Street - the heart of São Paulo – Daniela Glamour Garcia leads us through this queer chronic about the conflicts on who decides to live on the fringes of what is considered "normal" by majority. Does the rules, limits, classes and categories that are imposed to us really have the ability to make us feel habitable in ourselves?

 

About the film:

 

”Due to a personal identification with the film’s subject – sexuality, gender and heteronormativity – I started to read academic texts on Queer Theory, which led me to acquire a new perception of reality. I began to believe that make a movie to investigate the quick metamorphosis of this important subject would be essential by the possibility of approaching lines of thought that transcends the LGBT movement and merely civil or legal issues. I wanted to get this look into the daily life and identify how these changes are being experienced in practice”. (CAMILA BIAU)

When their lives cross they embark together on a sort of love story with unexpected consequences. Everything takes place under the desolate and disrupted landscape of Messina (Sicily, Italy).

 

About the film:

 

Extensions of trash, dropped boats on the beach, irons bars for concrete beams that come out in the sand like contemporary art. Put on stage these elements usually related to the degradation isn’t an act of denunciation but an act of love for this landscape that has always existed in this state, and that before a trained eye to the framework, offers unique possibilities. It may be kidnapped by the ugliness, and having to give it a form, we encounter certain classical forms; a world… a world is necessary if one wants to tell a story. (PASQUALE MARINO)
