Body Electric (Corpo Elétrico)
(Portuguese with English subtitles)
An erotic tale of identity and sexuality set in modern day Brazil. Elias works as an assistant designer in a clothing factory. As the distance between his professional and personal life closes, Elias explores his desires, invigorated by the freedom offered through his companions. Against the warnings of his superiors, Elias takes to socialising into the night with co-workers.
This feature debut by director Marcelo Caetano captures the beauty and the excitement of Elias’ sexual awakening, as seen against the colourful and vibrant backdrop of São Paulo.
