Curated by visiting scholar of Brazilian cinema Emanuella Leite Rodrigues de Moraes and under the supervision of the Professor and Director of the Center for Brazilian Studies Jonathan Warren, Travessias Brazilian Film Festival takes place at Northwest Film Forum May 2425. The festival is a showcase of work from remarkable contemporary women filmmakers from Brazil who are addressing race, gender and sexuality through transgressive short and feature-length documentaries, animation, and fiction.

A cinema without borders

Viewing a film is an opportunity to enter a new space-time different from the world and moment in which we live. Cinema allows us to travel to the corners of distant lands that we often do not see even when we physically visit these places. It can challenge the often unconscious biases we hold of other cultures and allows us to see societies in ways that we never imagined.

Travessias Brazilian Film Festival is our invitation to experience the many Brazils that are often unknown or unfamiliar to non-Brazilians and even most Brazilians. To this end, we have chosen films from different regions of Brazil that were produced by women filmmakers exploring the queer, poor, racial others of this enormously vast and diverse society.

In showing short and feature-length films, both fictional and documentary, as well as animation, viewers are offered crossings [travessias]  amazing journeys to worlds in which gender, sexual, racial and class prejudices and conventions are challenged by making visible and humanizing these oppressed margins of Brazil.
