Main program

The Sky Above / Sérgio Borges

Blurring borders between documentary and fiction, this film portrays a few moments from the lives of three men from Belo Horizonte: a transsexual academic, who fulfils her need for love from her work as a street prostitute, a Hare Krishna football supporter and an indolent would-be writer, working on nine books at once. Three “ordinary” men aged about 30, who play themselves. The Sky Above is a beautifully shot portrait, filled with subdued drama about complex, paradoxical identities in the 21st-century city.
