A documentary-fiction about the dizzying heights of gender and metamorphosis in Rio de Janeiro. A cinematographic object that transforms infinitely, that devours infinitely. Following the path of iconic transgender figure Luana Muniz (1961-2017), Obscuro Barroco explores different quests for the self, through transvestism, carnaval and political struggle. In turn, it asks questions about the desire for transformation of the body, both intimate and social.
