SQIFF18
Bixa Travesty (Tranny Fag)

Thu 6 December 2018

The rock documentary and political manifesto Bixa Travesty depicts the life of Brazilian musician and spoken word artist Linn da Quebrada, a self-proclaimed ‘tranny fag,’ who uses her body and music as weapons to fight machismo, transphobia, racism, and conformity. Quebrada and performance partner Jup do Bairro speak candidly from their lived experience as queers of colour growing up in the favelas of São Paulo, and the challenges of breaking into the country’s heteronormative funk scene.

Please note that this film contains strobe lighting. Film in Portuguese language with English language subtitles/captions. Hearing loop available. Film relies on visual material to convey ideas and non-English language, so less accessible for blind and partially sighted audiences.
