BOALÂNDIA documents the cultural resistance in the peripheries of Brazil. The protagonists of the film fight for visibility with the means of art and raise their voices against discrimination, police violence, racism and homophobia.
For three years, the filmmakers worked and lived with the collectives and activists, accompanying them in the Amazon rainforest, at protests in the capitals and in the subcultures of Brazilian metropolises.
Filmmaking, as a narrative form as much as a process of archiving, has a special political significance in cultural resistance to structural violence. BOALÂNDIA is a snapshot of our generation, of political dedication and vivid diversity.
