MY OWN PRIVATE HELL
In Inferninho — Portuguese for "Little Hell" — everyone can be what everyone is: Wonder Woman, Mickey Mouse, Wolverine, rabbit, gay, lesbian, hetero or anything in between. Deusimar's bar has forged a glittering community of regulars and newcomers. Yet every oasis dries up at some point. Deusimar wants to leave to find true love. When both gangsters and property investors threaten to break into this sweet-and-sour alternative world, the survival of a little Utopia and lots of individual quirks are at stake. The "little hell" becomes the center of a gentle rebellion. This is queer intimate theater, conceived in parallel as a play and a film, both without a real budget, by an artists' collective in Fortaleza in northern Brazil, far from the traditional centers of the film industry.
