OBSCURO BARROCO tows the line between documentary and fiction as it tackles the dizzying heights of gender and metamorphosis. It is also a cinematographic homage to a land of extremes: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Following the path of iconic transgender figure Luana Muniz, the film explores different quests for the self through her own gender identity, Carnaval, and political struggle. A poetic film, OBSCURO BARROCO asks questions about one’s desire for transformation of the body, whether intimate or social, paired with beautifully vibrant, and mesmerizing footage of Rio de Janeiro’s colorful population and cityscapes.
