Olhe Pra Mim de Novo
Look at Me Again

Claudia Priscilla, Kiko Goifman

Brazil, Documentary, 2011
79 min, HD, Color
Portuguese with English subtitles


This documentary tells the story of a transsexual living in the northeast part of Brazil. We see him, Sillvyo Luccio, in a journey from Ceará to Paraíba looking for his daughter, Maria Tereza. Tereza does not accept her mother's sex transformation, and they live far away from one another, which is why Sillvyo has to travel for days in order to reach her. The film uses Sillvyo's own voice to tell his story, his sufferings, and his misfortunes, including his desire to have a biological family. He finds solidarity in the lives of other people who have suffered discrimination, such as transvestites and patients of a rare muscle disease. This film had its world premiere at Buenos Aires Festival Internacional de Cine Independiente and also screened in the Berlin International Film Festival.
