Never has queer joy been so fragile and so defiant! Marginalised communities of Black trans women, indigenous groups and non-binary people co-create an open square in Sao Paulo. Rebellious and confrontational, radical performance jostles alongside fierce debate with bemused passers by, drunk men and homeless people. This electrifying documentary buzzes throughout as these disparate communities attempt to build alliances for their survival against the rise of Bolsonaro, and even features a cameo from superstar academic Judith Butler.

Content note: Archive footage of violence against Black trans women and indigenous communities.
