Divine Love

December 10, 2020 12:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Thursday, repeating until December 24, 2020 12:00 am

Set in a future Brazil where the Evangelical Church controls daily life, the dystopian drama Divine Love follows the story of a woman who uses her government position to save struggling couples from divorce.

Nov 27, 2020 – Dec 24, 2020

The bureaucrat’s efforts to save marriages and get closer to God through the unconventional “sex therapy” practices of the Church of Divine Love are complicated by her desire to conceive a child and improve her own marriage. With its drive-thru chapels and neon-lit evangelical raves, the world of Divine Love presages the trajectory of Brazil’s political and cultural climate under President Jair Bolsonaro.

Gabriel Mascaro’s residency in the center’s Film/Video Studio supported the project and it was the result of a partnership with Associação Cultural Videobrasil, São Paulo. Mascaro is also one of the participating filmmakers in the center’s Artist Residency Award project Cinetracts ’20. (101 mins., digital video). In Portuguese with English subtitles.
