Trópico de Capricórnio (Tropic of Capricorn)
2005, 30:00 minutes, colour, Portuguese with English Subtitles
Four transsexuals are brought in to a hotel room on the same night. Each trans woman is asked to lie on a bed in an empty room and reveal herself to a camera mounted on the ceiling. As the film progresses, their stories blend, separate and overlap in a beautifully constructed collage of multi-colored images. They share with the camera their fantasies, hopes, questionings and experiences in the streets of São Paulo. "Tropic of Capricorn” was originally an installation.
