From 3 years of research around Brazil, HÍBRIDOS, THE SPIRITS OF BRAZIL dives into the sacred culture of the largest country in South America through a very poetic and sensorial approach.
As an exploration of trance-cinema, the film breaks down the distance between the viewer and the subject, guiding them trough a realm of movements, of non-stop dances, of music pulsating at high rhythms, creating in its core a new perspective about what might be the invisible and how to we deal with it in a creative way.
An ethnographic journey into the world of sacred ceremonies and their diversity, as well as a trip into cinema as a pure poetic language. Without any voices paving the way, only the sounds of the rituals and the chants of the devotees, Híbridos is a music film of a new kind.
Directed by French filmmakers and researchers Priscilla Telmon & Vincent Moon, co-produced by Brazilian-born Fernanda Abreu, HÍBRIDOS has been created in a very independent way, outside the classical circuits. This methodology allowed us to offer all the films to the people we filmed, they can use this material to celebrate their cultures, and allowed the project to evolve organically, and little by little create its own forms.
This feature length film is only one part of a trans-cinema project that includes this website, a large collection of digital albums and short films, live cinema experiments around the world, and immersive multi-screens installations.
