Synopsis

During the pandemic, two young men from Bahia take ancestry tests. In this short film, director Marcus Curvelo makes use of mockery to provoke reflections on territory and identity. Set in the British Cemetery of Bahia, the film follows the young Bahians as they investigate the origin of the cemetery, the prospect of carrying English DNA, and who can be buried in “the cemetery with the most beautiful view of the city”. (K. M.)
