RALÉ – THE LOWER DEPTHS
A film within a film. Young directors, prodigal adolescents, are filming "The Exhibitionist" in the middle of a farm in a paradise-like region. Baron (Ney Matogrosso) lives on the farm, where his marriage to dancer Marcelo will be celebrated. The film poetically investigates the Brazilian soul, with the Amazon as the center of the world, reflecting on existential issues, the right to sexual freedom and individuality.
