An experimental documentary showcasing the candor and color of Brazil’s ballroom culture. Through the eyes of various members of House of Blyndex—a multidisciplinary ballroom family from São Paula— we discover how a proud group of Black and LGBTQ people come together to promote community and the creativity of those marginalized by society.

House of Blyndex was co-directed by Rodrigo Inada and Yuri Mira, together with House member and creative director Paula Saul. The project’s various film formats and mediums present an authentic look at House of Blyndex’s spirit and goals amidst a whirlwind of dipping, dropping, spinning, and kicking.

“Brazil is a country that has a lot of financial and social inequality,” the directors said in a joint statement, “and especially in the arts scene it is difficult for people that are on the outskirts of society to make it.” For its members, Blyndex is a family of Black, queer, and trans people united in creativity, rising together as a community to overcome the hardships that they may face in life.

House of Blyndex acts through the ballroom community and culture to create music, fashion, scenography, styling, dance, acting, education. Breaking the tradition of corporate hierarchies, the house has a horizontal system of dynamic control, where each of the fifteen members has equal autonomy over decisions. Since its opening, Blyndex has focused on the development and promotion of its artists, taking their names across Brazil and throughout the world.
