BRA 2018, 82 minutes, documentary, original soundtrack with English subtitles, directed by Pedro Gui
With Rogéria, Jô Soares, Bibi Ferreira and others
From the birth of Astolfo Barroso Pinto to the birth of Rogéria (who was previously Rogério), Pedro Gui’s documentary takes us on a loving journey into the past of one of Brazil’s greatest transvestite artists. To keep her male identity and her female side in dialogue, Rogéria, who called herself a »transvestite of the Brazilian family«, never changed her birth name. The film shows the traces that the artist has left in the world outside and especially within Brazil.
In cooperation with MSB (Balaio e. V., Munich)
