3 Siblings

A Film by Sheena Rossiter

Synopsis

Ludmylla, Victor and Ângelo are three siblings with different gender identities and sexual orientations. Born and raised in one of São Paulo’s favelas, they bring us into their world during the city’s LGBT Pride Month. Every year, São Paulo hosts one of the world’s largest Pride Parades to celebrate Brazil’s LGBT community. But homophobia and transphobia are still rampant in South America’s largest nation. These three siblings show us how they face these societal challenges everyday, and how it impacts their relationships with each other.
