A maestro of startling documentary reinvention, Brazilian artist Kika Nicolela, part-time community saviour and veteran of internationalist fringe movie showcases, returns to Toronto to present three of her most prescient encounters. At each turn she finds a way to shine a light onto forgotten faces, the lives of trans women, and the indomitable Marquise of Santos, a larger-than-life figure who courted controversy and royal privilege. This mini-retrospective includes a bevy of award-winners including Flickering (2009), Trópico de Capricórnio (Tropic of Capricorn), 2005, and Biografias (Biographies), 2016.
