Brazilian filmmaker Diego Costa traces back (and forth) the sources of his femininity through provocative/perverse encounters with his Mother, Her sister, and Her drag doppelgängers. At once an experimental cinematic love letter and letter of rupture, the Mother is here muse and monster, incorporated and exorcised from the son's body.
(Brazil, 2013, Dir. Diego Costa, 93 min., In Portuguese and French, with English subtitles)
