Juliana Muniz's film operates in the contrast between the melancholy of mourning, in a performative and poetic fictional tone, with the austere struggle for justice. From these two separate records, one of which a staging as to how this pain may be subjectively imagined through a space of minimalist codes, the short film navigates from the individual to the collective, establishing a confrontation to the police violence that corrodes the country.
