The Line-Up

Bare

BARE

Available June 11 – 21, 2021

Aleksandr M. Vinogradov; 2020; Belgium; 90 min.

A voyeuristic, behind-the-scenes look as a choreographer and his team go through the process of auditions, rehearsals and eventually a premiere of the dance piece Anima Ardens. The journey reveals internal artistic conflicts between the dancers and their personal challenges during the several months of creating the performance. Close ups of male skin and non-stop nudity show how vulnerable these men can be within the non-existent borders of artistic freedom. An unabashed celebration of movement and the male body.

Cássio Pereira dos Santos; 2020; Brazil; 95 min.; in Portuguese with English subtitles

Valentina and her mother Márcia find themselves on the move once again after the high-schooler is discovered to be trans. Life seems hopeful, though, after they land in a small town where nobody knows them and they can start anew. As the summer unfolds, Márcia finds a nice boyfriend, Valentina meets some cool new pals at summer school, and everything seems like it might work out this time. Valentina starts to open up and relax into being a real teenager, hanging out and going to parties with Júlio, who is gay and trying to find love, and pregnant Amanda. Unfortunately, danger lurks in the community, but no one is going to stop this resilient girl from being who she is and living her life in this special coming-of-age drama.
