"A look on the random, on landscape, on daily life. Small actions, delicate displacements. The poetry in the mundane. The power of delicacy. The vulnerable image. A compilation of Brazilian recent videos. These artists articulate images from reality, and escape definitions of genre – documentary, performance, experimental, fiction? - to weave a personnel poetic drawn from the subject's relation to his or her surroundings, while avoiding technical mannerisms or superfluous effects." 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
