This wordless documentary invites you to feel the essence of the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte through its walls. From graffiti to slogans, political thoughts, hieroglyphs, indecipherable symbols, and declarations of love, you’ll get to see an authentic portrait of this vibrant city. The documentary also addresses the strong social messages that local artists, poets, and activists have conveyed through their chosen medium. These messages, which cannot be expressed through voting, are directed to the dominant classes and present an incomparable urban mosaic of Brazil.
