    • Synopsis
    • Six filmmakers and one movie, inside another movie. How would one make films while being filmed? Which cinema would Uerlem, from the Santa Maria community, love and want to show to the world? Diogo lives in Queimados, a two-hour train trip to the city center of Rio, but poetry and film move his heart and body. There he finds others that, just like him, come from afar to live a reality in which they see themselves portrayed, recreating the films of daily life.

      Part of the Reimagine Rio project by the celebrated Brazilian filmmaker Kátia Lund (City of God, News of a Private War) and first time co-director Lili Fialho, Movie Magic Motion is a stunning achievement of documentary filmmaking.
