Teddybear is a corpulent gay man in his early 30th living in the dull favelas in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. Being gay in such an environment is already hard, being an introvert as well makes matters even worse. He falls in love with one of Copacabana’s top-notch male prostitutes who is exclusively working for wealthy, upper-class clients. This young man seems entirely out of reach for Teddy. However, he is determined to overcome his inhibitions and finally meet him.
Emmanuel in the desert
What happens if the nail polish crackles off by tearing-up the dirt? Piece by piece, afar from all, deep in the countryside. Emmanuel tells us about rural places and how to reinvent your sexuality deep in a cultural and emotional desert. Emmanuel in the desert is a grandiose piece about rising above fear and loneliness, strengthening your inner self, and how to grow throught the power of radical self-realization.
