Same/Different/Both/Neither


A short film by Adriana Barbosa and Fernanda Pessoa
Brazil/ U.S.A/Mexico, 18 min, 2020

In a period of isolation, far away from each other, two friends reconnect through video-letters, inspired by the poetic gaze of women filmmakers: Marie Menken, Joyce Wieland, Gunvor Nelson and Yvonne Rainer. Fernanda is a Brazilian living in São Paulo, Adriana is a Mexican-Brazilian living in Los Angeles. They share their inspiration while capturing the reality of these times: the pot-banging protests against Bolsonaro, a home moving, the passing of days that feel all the same, gentrification that won’t stop even during a pandemic, the Black Lives Matter protests and the yearning of meeting each other again soon.
