An imaginary documentary that focuses on what is unknown and unseen, Vera Cruz is based on a letter from one of Brazil’s first colonists to the Portuguese king, offering one of the earliest written descriptions of this new “eden.” Against the emptied-out imagery of white leader and a soundtrack of waves and wind, subtitles present the original letter as screenplay-like dialogue, raising questions about what is left out of written histories. Artist Rosângela Rennó is represented in the Cruzamentos exhibition with several works from her The Last Photo series. (44 mins., video)
