Uýria, a non-binary trans artist from Brazil, takes us on a transformative journey through the Amazon forest. Using elements from the forest, ancestral messages and indigenous representations, she embodies an entity traversed by multiple identities. Like her alter ego Emerson, biologist, activist and educator, she denounces structural racism, transphobia and environmental destruction. This mesmerising documentary by director Juliana Curi is radically poetic and a must-see on the big screen. A fresh and different take on the Amazon, its locals and the new queer generation.
