Bigger-than-life revolutionary, Indianara and her group lead a fight for the survival of transgender people in Brazil. She gathers her forces for one last battle against the attacks from her political party and the totalitarian threat to come. Shot between 2016 and 2018 in the run-up to the election of Jair Bolsonaro and premiering at Cannes, Indianara takes us to Casa Nem, a trans, gay and lesbian shelter in Rio de Janeiro. Through violent demonstrations, electoral events, bereavements and pool parties, we follow the charismatic Indianara Siqueira, a modern-day warrior, as she leads her ‘troops’ with an iron will and inexhaustible passion. A powerful, vital work co-directed by Marcelo Barbosa and Aude Chevalier-Beaumel, a masterpiece of film art in a purely observational style that brings a frightening reality all too vividly to life.
