Directed by Claudia Priscilla and Kiko Goifman, Bixa Travesty explores the life and art of trans musician, activist and performance artist Linn da Quebrada. The film examines the creative process behind her work, which confronts issues of sexism, racism, and homophobia, while addressing the heteronormative, macho and patriarchal aspects of Brazilian culture. A hit on the film festival circuit, and the winner of multiple awards including the Teddy at the Berlin International Film Festival, Bixa Travesty is a compelling portrait of a fearless and provocative artist.
