故事梗概

玛丽娜的死亡将她的过去变成了遗产。她的回忆录和她的身份认同在一场关于她的性别的争端中被挟持了。

导演介绍

蒂亚戈以《你的王国来临》(2014)在电影学院出道,没有预算——接下来的两部作品《黑暗的旋律》(2016)和《今天之前》(2017)同样如此。通过他作为里约热内卢普通郊区的同性恋者的视角,他描绘了当地的LGBTQ群体和社会斗争。2019年推出了第四部作品《旋转电影》——与他的工作室同名。2021年,他完成了个人的第五部作品《我的(非)存在回忆录》。

他的独立作品不断获奖。他最大的成就之一是在第46届格拉玛多国际电影节(巴西历史最悠久的电影节)斩获大奖。他执导的短片被25个以上国家的电影节选中,如多伦多LGBT电影节、洛杉矶同志影展、芝加哥拉丁裔电影节等等,并最终在电视上播出。

在他6年的职业生涯中,蒂亚戈成为了巴西电影学院的正式成员,该学院是美国电影艺术与科学学院的巴西合作伙伴。

导演阐述

《我的(非)存在回忆录》是在巴西上次总统选举之后制作的,在这次选举中,巴西最保守的政治人物当选了。

根据巴西易装癖和变性者协会(ANTRA)公布的数据,当我们在2019年底拍摄这部电影时,巴西在针对变性人的暴力和谋杀率方面保持全球第一。他们的数据库显示,2020年的谋杀率比去年增加了48%左右,其中受害者大部分是黑人。

通过无视和隔离的历史背景,试图让社会少数群体噤声的做法,在巴西根深蒂固。而如今,随着政治鼓励的仇恨言论日益流行,这些行为愈演愈烈。

2018年,我们听到了最令人心碎的消息之一:作为人权倡导者的女同性恋警官玛丽埃尔·弗兰科被残忍地谋杀。两年后,她的声音依然强大,并在她的社区、行动和回忆录中回响。

这部电影的灵感正是来自这些勇敢的声音,并表明任何阻碍都永远不会让我们沉默。

Synopsis

Marina’s death transforms her past into heritage. Her memoirs and the portrait of her identity are hostage in a dispute to claim her gender.

Director Biography

Thiago debuted with “Thy Kingdom Come” (2014) at film school without a budget as the following “Melody of Darkness” (2016) and “Before Today” (2017) would be. Through his perspective as a gay man in Rio de Janeiro’s popular suburbs, he portrayed the local LGBTQ community and social struggles. In 2019, he released his fourth work, “Rotatória Filmes,” the same name as his studio. In 2021, his 5th short movie “Memoirs of the (Non) Existent Me” would be finished.

He’s been constantly awarded with his independent work. One of his biggest achievements was winning a top award at the 46th Gramado International Film Festival, Brazil’s most traditional film festival. The short movies he directed were selected through 25+ countries in festivals such as Inside Out Toronto, Outfest, Chicago Latino Film Festival, Gaze and were eventually broadcasted on TV.

In his 6-year career in film, Thiago earned a spot as an official member of the Brazilian Movie Academy, a Brazilian partner of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science.

Director’s Statement

Memoirs of the (Non) Existent Me” was produced after the last presidential election in Brazil, where the most conservative figures were elected.

When we shot the movie by the end of 2019, the country kept the first place worldwide in violence and murder rate specifically against transgender people, according to ANTRA (National Association of Travestis and Transexuals of Brazil). Their database shows that in 2020 the murder rate increased around 48% from last year, the majority of them being black.

The attempt to silence social minorities has been part of Brazil through a history of negligence and segregation. These attempts are now louder with the increasing popularity of hate speeches encouraged by the political environment.

In 2018, we’ve had one of the most heartbreaking news when Marielle Franco, a lesbian POC deputy, was murdered in a brutal effort to silence her as an advocate for human rights. Two years later, her voice is still strong and echoed through her community, actions and memoir.

This movie is inspired by all of these voices and states that those attempts will NEVER SILENCE US.
