Synopsis

Counter to the socially stratified imagery regarding the AIDS epidemic in Brazil and the everyday serophobia directed at people living with HIV, the documentary film strives to remodel and appropriate these overly codified terms and images, turning its focus to seven artists and an activist doctor in their life stories, desires, and perceptions. Alongside the interviews underpinning the film and echoing the provocation in the title, the work ventures towards artistic forms and discourses as a possibility for critical elaborations and assertion of life in the present. *(C.I)
