YOUNG AND MISERABLE OR A MAN SCREAMING IS NOT A DANCING BEAR
Thiago B. Mendonça • Brazil • 2016 • 127 min.
Young and miserable film

“To start again, destruction is a must”.
A group of artists test the borders between art and life. Combining theatre, music and performances in public spaces, they try to create a revolutionary consciousness. As the horizon narrows in a society that becomes more and more authoritarian, they feel impelled to look for the last and greatest aesthetic act. The movie is a metaphor of the contemporary Brazilian youth and their political horizon, inspired in an essay by Pier Paolo Pasolini and by the revolutionary poetry of Aimé Cesaire.
