A powerful short by Brazilian director Del (previously featured here). Set to Liniker’s cover of “Forever Young” by Alphaville, “35” exposes the brutal reality of hate and violence in Brazil, a place where transsexuals have a life expectancy of just 35 years.
“The idea for the film was developed together with Luh Mazza (scriptwtitter) and Uni Correa (creative researcher), two transsexual women who break statistics to open space in a super-conservative society, specially now, after the election of Jair Bolsonaro, an alt-right, notoriously homophobic President.”
