  • Look at Me Again

    2011. Brazil. Directed by Kiko Goifman, Claudia Priscilla. By the time we meet him wandering alone on a deserted road, Silvyo Lucio’s story is already intriguingly complex: born a woman, she lived as a lesbian before eventually becoming a man. In this road-movie trip through northeastern Brazil, Silvyo searches for a family and for a medical answer to he and his wife’s greatest wish: to have a child who shares their DNA. While on the road, he meets with people from different minorities—others who feel different, outcast. As he goes deeper into the sertão, Silvyo’s own story surfaces, rich with the pain of transition and transformation in the face of a traditional, fundamentalist upbringing. This is a revealing portrait of a resilient human being's struggle through trauma toward acceptance and hope—a search for what it is to be a man from the wilderness, "a real macho." Portuguese with English subtitles. 77 min.
