LGBTQ+ Rights in Brazil: Resistance through the Creative Act

This is a past event.

Monday, October 17, 2022 at 5:00pm to 8:00pm

GC 140, GC 140

Free Film Screening of the movie Berenice in GC 140!

Berenice is a crime drama based on Luiz Alfredo Garcia-Roza´s namesake novel.

Berenice is a thirty-five-year-old woman extremely committed to her work as a taxi driver in Rio de Janeiro.

Her profession consumes most of her days, and the little time she has off she spends raising her son, Thiago, a teenager in search of his sexual identity, and dealing with her turbulent marriage to forty-five-years-old crime reporter Domingos.

The weary relationship, worn out by her husband’s violent outbursts, have erased all signs of Berenice’s femininity and voided her life of any meaning. The murder of Isabelle, a beautiful transgender woman, at Copacabana Beach sparks her investigative instincts and changes her life forever.

There will be a Q&A with Producer Elisa Tolomelli and Director Allan Fiterman, as well as a panel with Dr. Nicola Gavioli of Modern Languages, and LACC Graduate student Roberto Viana.
