Dir. Adirley Queirós. 2014, 90 mins. In Portuguese with English subtitles. With Marquim do Tropa, Dilmar Durães. One night in 1986, a baile funk club in a poorer district adjacent to Brazil’s capital city was raided by police and forcibly shut down. White patrons of the predominantly black club were allowed to exit, and the police assaulted those who remained. Adirley Queirós investigates this event by boldly layering sci-fi tropes on top of documentary evidence in the form of a time traveler from 2075 sent to follow two real-life men crippled by the attack. Co-presented with Cinema Tropical. Sponsored by the Consulate General of Brazil in New York.
This film is presented as part of a double-feature with Once There Was Brasilia
