Exu Matou Um Passaro. Violeta's return

Violeta returns to Brazil after 20 years in Spain. In the country where she was born, she has a meeting marked with a renewal of vows, her remaining family, a new identity and the strangeness of being back in a place that was never her own.

After his documentary  Escape, available on Guidedoc, the Brazilian filmmaker Vinicius Sassine comes with this observational documentary about a character on the margins. Raw, close and deeply sincere, the film explores the concepts of identity and belonging to a territory.
