Short film, fiction
Director, screenplay, actress, and editor
The film is born in an obscure social and political context in Brazil, where we witness an exponential advance of necropolitics in the country and also a widespread ecocide mostly caused by a fascist government. As a response to this context, the film goes beyond the will to value diversity, and it proposes a radical notion of otherness: being able to become, in fact, a diversity of beings. The name JAGUAR comes from the indigenous language Tupi-Guarani, “ya’wara”, and the film is a decolonial and tropical reinterpretation of the book “One, nobody, and a hundred thousand”, by the Italian playwright Luigi Pirandello.
