In this deeply personal video diary, a young researcher tries to make sense of her fascination for the film "The Pain of Others" by Penny Lane. A deep dive into the discomforting world of YouTube and online conspiracies, that challenges traditional notions of what documentary cinema is, or should be.


Tentehar - Sensitive Architecture

We came across traditional rituals of a mixed race of indigenous, black and white people, with their mystic practices, their shamans and healers that express a reality and a way of life that doesn’t belong to any kind of paradigm. This problem is extremely relevant in the current political situation of Brazil in face of the repeated environmental and social catastrophes that are being inflicted upon us.These people have a way of acting which favours a sustainable development, their knowledge should be respected.The world is divided in two categories, independent of any ideology:the rich world and the poor world.We related the religious rituals, the artistic and the mystic trances in a Brazil where poverty and hunger are invisible to a large part of the society. A country of people that has invisible myths and such a rich diversity is being transformed into a unison and melancholic chant. The Guardians Forest whose leader was murdered last Dec, tells us what motivates their fight.
