    • Synopsis
    • Lavra is a documentary about the losses and damages resulting from the historical process of mining in the state of Minas Gerais (Brazil). From a point of view that values ​​individual and collective memory, it focuses on the importance of the landscape in the construction of people's identity.
      The narrative, in a creative documentary format, has characteristics that bring it closer to a road-movie crossing Minas Gerais, guided by the devastation caused by the mining action in the State. Along the way there are stones, people, souvenirs, craters, stories. And in the midst of destruction, perhaps there are still traces of beauty. We do not see it. As a subjective camera, it is a voice, which guides the viewer, from a presence in all the places visited by the documentary.
      Language is hybrid, merging imaginary and subjective constructs with real situations. Through the character that traverses the "open veins" of the mining regions, the documentary elements emerge by the force of real interlocutors and the landscapes portrayed, in their details or grandiosities, in an articulation of languages ​​that complement each other, and the protagonists become several, each one evidencing feelings contained in the coexistence of the miner with the mining, in a reality affected by a succession of tragedies.
