story of a marketer
The film, which was filmed at the fair in Casa Amarela and at Morro da Conceição, tells the story of a market vendor who has the habit of listening to police programs and praying for the victims and suspects involved in the dawn crimes. In the cast, the short features names such as Laís Vieira, Okado do Canal, Clebia Sousa and Mohana Uchôa.
With a cast and crew mostly composed of black people, the production aimed to democratize opportunities on set, contrary to the traditional team models used in Pernambuco cinema. The film also has communicational accessibility features (audio description, pounds and subtitles for the deaf and deaf), allowing people with disabilities to access the content.
