Luiza Geraldi Folegatti

Luiza Geraldi Folegatti’s King On, Brasil! is a short documentary featuring six Brazilian Drag Kings and their use of social media to share their work, knowledge and performances which in turn strengthen their community. The video consists of screen cast footage of uploaded videos and Skype interviews while they are involved in the transformation process of becoming their character selves. Thus, the film offers insight into strategies of representation, personal experience, and processes of exposure and acceptance.
