Directed by Joana Lourenço & Ana Manana
Duration 16’ | Portuguese with English subtitles
A short documentary about a Portuguese-Brazilian DJ couple, who introduced Brazilian funk music to Lisbon's nightlife. They created an alternative and queer-friendly space supporting and promoting new projects, with a strong message of female empowerment. The documentary was recorded in spaces and contexts that no longer exist, due to the city‘s gentrification. In addition to a portrait of a young community, Caravagyo is also a record of today's Lisbon, its agents and events.
Ana Manana and Joana Lourenço both studied Communication Design at the Fine Arts School of Lisbon, and at the Kino-Doc documentary course where they directed Caravagyo. They are studying Visual Anthropology at Nova University in Lisbon and are preparing a new short O Pomar to be shot in 2022.
Joana Lourenço & Ana Manana will be present at WOMEX 21 and there will be a Q&A after the screening.
