故事梗概 Synopsis

一名伦敦记者回到他的出生地巴西,为了面对他青春期的一个梦魇:面粉测试。这个荒谬的测试是在军事独裁时期进行的,目的是确定应征入伍的军人是否为同性恋。测试内容包括让新入伍的军人裸体坐在面粉上,以测量他们的肛门围和道德操守。可悲的是,这一程序并不仅仅发生在那个时期。博尔索纳罗的极端恐同政府试图为类似的臭名昭著的测试立法。

A London journalist returns to his birth nation Brazil in order to face one of the demons of his adolescence: the Flour Test. This ludicrous experiment was conducted during the military dictatorship in order to determine whether army conscripts were homosexual. It consisted of males being made to sit butt-naked on flour in order to measure the girth of their anus and the integrity of their morals. Sadly, this procedure is not confined to the past. Bolsonaro’s ultra-homophobic government has attempted to introduce legislation akin to the infamous test.

导演介绍 Director Biography

维克托·弗拉加(Victor Fraga)是一位现居于伦敦的巴西作家,在电影行业及其相关专业有超过15年的从业经验。他是一名同性恋作家,自称是一名肮脏的拉丁移民。他有丰富的电影记者经验。他曾是现已停业的英国独立杂志《电影节杂志》(2006年和2007年)和《丛林鼓》(2007年和2008年)的编辑。2006年至2013年,他在《卫报》担任了七年的高级作家和商业分析师。他的作品经常被描述为引人注目、精辟和有争议性的。他认为电影永远不应该被误认为是无害的娱乐工具。他创建了DMovies网站,因为他想与业内人士一起,重新发现电影中经常被忽视的“肮脏”的方面。他随时准备深入挖掘出一些“肮脏”的东西,并在英国、巴西、欧洲和各个国家挽救电影中蕴含的宝石般的价值和魔力。他是脏电影有限公司(www.DMovies)的创始人和董事。Dirty Movies Ltd是一家领先的独立电影出版物,也是自2016年以来的制片公司。2021他执导了他的第一部电影——纪录片《政变工厂》。这部电影在著名的哈瓦那电影节首映,并在欧洲各地的电影节和巴西的电影院巡回放映。它于2022年9月在视频点播(VoD)上发布,自那以来,近20万人观看了这部电影。

Victor Fraga is a Brazilian born and London-based writer with more than 15 years of involvement in the cinema industry and beyond. He is an LGBT writer, and describes himself as a dirty Latin immigrant. He has vast experience as a film journalist. He was previously the editor of the now defunct UK independent magazine The Film Festival Magazine (2006 and 2007) and JungleDrums (2007 and 2008). He worked as a senior writer and business analyst for The Guardian for seven years between 2006 and 2013. His writing has often been described as compelling, incisive and controversial. He believes that cinema should never be mistaken for a harmless entertainment tool. He conceived the website DMovies because he wants – together with other people in the industry – to rediscover the often neglected “dirty” aspects of cinema. He’s ready to dig deep down and get filthy anytime, and to reclaim the value of the precious gemstones of cinema in the UK, Brazil, Europe and elsewhere. He is the founder and the director of Dirty Movies Ltd (www.DMovies), the portal for thought-provoking cinema, a leading independent film publication and also production house since 2016. He direct his first film in 2021, the feature documentary The Coup d’ État Factory. The film premiered at the prestigious Havana Film festival, toured festivals around Europe and cinemas in Brazil. It was launched on VoD in September 2022, and it has since been viewed by nearly 200,000 people. He directed the short film The Flour Test in 2022.

导演阐述 Director Statement

巴西曾是争取全球性少数群体权利的典范国家。早在2013年,该国就先于英国和美国等国家实现了同性婚姻合法化。我们举办了世界上最大的同性恋骄傲活动。然而,我们也有最多的同性恋谋杀案。恐同者仍然潜伏在巴西的各个地方,在我们公开而狂热的恐同总统博尔索纳罗(Bolsonaro)政府的领导下,他们表现出了丑陋的面目。各种类型的法西斯和偏执狂(LGBT恐惧症、种族主义、仇外心理、厌女症等)找到了一位发言人——博尔索纳罗。

我是一名居住在英国的巴西移民。所以我决定,我有责任向世界展示巴西政府的丑陋面目。我回到巴西是为了面对和净化我青春期的一个梦魇:面粉测试。这个测试是博尔索纳罗领导下的巴西的一部充满荒诞的诗歌性的怪诞寓言。令人震惊的是,历史竟会以如此奇怪的方式再次上演。

Brazil was once a model for LGBT rights and around the globe. The country implemented equal marriage in 2013, before countries such as the UK and the US. We hold the biggest Gay Pride event in the world. However we also have the highest number of gay murders. Homophobia remained latent in Brazil and it showed its ugly face under the government of Bolsonaro, our openly and rabidly homophobic president. Fascists and bigots of all types (LGBT-phobias, racists, xenophobes, misogynists, etc.) found a spokesperson in Bolsonaro.

I am a Brazilian immigrant living in the UK.  So I decided that it is my duty to reveal the monstrous face of Brazil to the world. I returned to Brazil in order to face and purge one of the demons of my adolescence: The Flour Test. The Test is a grotesque allegory of Brazil under Bolsonaro, infused with the poetry of the absurd. It is shocking that history could repeat itself in such bizarre and strange ways.
