BRAZILEBB & FLOW, WINNER OF THE BEST EDITING AWARD AT THE BRASILIA FILM FESTIVAL

Critics and audiences were unanimous: Best Editing. At the recent Brasilia Film Festival (biffestival.com), this category was won by Gabriel Mascaro’s film Ebb & Flow, which was produced with a grant from the ArtAids Foundation. Ebb & Flow is an experimental project that includes hybrid techniques that straddle documentary and fiction. The protagonist is Rodrigo (Márcio Campelo), a young man who, in spite of his deafness, earns a living installing car radios at a small leadership located on the outskirts of Recife, in north-western Brazil. In the words of the artist: “The aesthetic choices of filming with a fixed camera and extending the shots are intended to transmit the sensory experiences of Rodrigo, who was chosen as the main character in order to weave a web of sonic vibrations, noises, silences, hesitations and ambiguities.” Mascaro deals with the issue of AIDS and the stigma associated with the illness by exploring a situation of ‘normality’, that is, the everyday life of a young HIV-positive man.
