Berlinale – Teddy Bear – Najbolji dokumentarni film

Dokumentarni film koji prati MC Linn Da Quebrada, crnu trans ženu, izvođačicu i aktivistkinju koja živi u siromašnom delu Sao Paola. Njeni elektrizirajući nastupi (sa puno golotinje) se hrabro bore sa brazilskim hetero-normativnim mačizmom.

Berlinale – Teddy Bear – Best documentary

A documentary that follows Mc Linn Da Quebrada, a black trans woman, performer and activist living in impoverished São Paulo. Her electrifying performances (with plenty of nudity) brazenly take on Brazil’s hetero-normative machismo.
