I grew up in the countryside of Pernambuco in the 90s, a context in which the autocracy was a condition and that crossed all dimensions of society. The job your parents had, the relationships you build, the feeling of belonging to social groups, leisure, all of that, and much more was indiscriminately related to the car you have, or don't have. The power of consumption as a social affirmation was wide open all the time in a society on the margins of capitalist privileges. Tucked into this where all the dimensions of toxic masculinity and that was from that social broth, along with the landscape of the countryside of Pernambuco, from which Auto Falo emerged, a film with a very personal dimension, but which openly dialogues with different audiences. It is a web of memories, but also a colorful and fantastic pamphlet on the dystopia of a crisis of values society.
