In Nonsense Guerrilla’s Manual, Joacélio Batista creates an allegorical and entertaining synthesis of political, social, and cultural issues through its characters: children. Armed by children’s games in the urban periphery, they (the children and games) establish a dialogue with social reality from an ironic game by way of an adult and, in a way, academic language. What in these games could be seen as “trolling” and what should be taken seriously? (K. M)
