We first showed the work of Brazilian filmmaker and artist Gabriel Mascaro (b. 1983) as part of our 2014 film program Cruzamentos: Contemporary Brazilian Documentary. Since then, his work has screened numerous times in both the Film/Video Theater and The Box. In 2013, Mascaro was awarded a residency in the Film/Video Studio funded through our Via Brasil project and a partnership with Associação Cultural Videobrasil. During his residencies in 2015 and 2016, Mascaro worked on a photo project involving assembly-line workers in the Brazilian factory that mass-produces the famous Guy Fawkes mask (seen in the graphic novel and film V For Vendetta and used by the hacktivist group Anonymous). The Via Brasil residency also provided seed funding for Divine Love (2019), a dystopian narrative set in a future Brazil that tells the surreal story of a deeply religious government worker.
Divine Love premiered at Sundance and screened as part of Picture Lock on November 2, 2019.
