    • Synopsis
    • Insurgents Delirium: A limit movie
      Brazilian film industry is experiencing a growth momentum driven by incentive laws, public incentives, new ways of collective financing and the participation of new channels and platforms in production and co-production. But even so, in this current context there is little interest in the search for innovation within cinematographic language, as well as in narratives. The very theme of artistic production, explored in other decades of Brazilian film history (in films such as Entranced Earth by Glauber Rocha, 1967), it is getting far more distant from the large and small screens. This tendency is, in a great sense, encouraged by the belief that the general public needs simple audiovisual content and immediate assimilation. Insurgents Delirium goes against this trend believing that the great public can and wants to enjoy complex stories, as well as appreciate photographs and camera movements full of symbolism and affection.
      Insurgents Delirium is a film that debates the contemporary art, its forms of production and relation with the society. It seeks to bring a sophisticated narrative, on the threshold between realism and surrealism. As a concept film, it is also engaging and thought provoking, eye-catching the audience in the protagonist’s drama making the philosophical debates presented to directly interact with the audience.
      The film still places artistic production into the current political context, facing new dilemmas such as protests, police oppression and squats. It is urgent to continue generating an audiovisual production of an artistic nature, stimulating audiences to reflect on their lives and roles in the society.
      Important references for this film are the work of David Linch - City of Dreams; Entranced Earth by Glauber Rocha; and The Exterminating Angel by Luis Buñuel.
