This edition of the Broad Underground Film Series features a selection of short experimental videos by contemporary Brazilian artists. In sensuous and surprising ways the artists’ cameras probe into a variety of cultural landscapes, which are populated by natural surroundings, religious climates and political currents. These works deliberately fracture the kind of power-laden gaze that is traditionally held on such subject matters. In order to uproot and refresh the hegemonically conditioned outlook of the present-day spectator, they engender a productive form of deviant and defiant anthropology by means of subverting the language of ethnographic film itself.
