South African Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

Title: Madame Sat�
Director: Karim A�nouz
Specs: Brazil / Portugal 2002 35mm 105min subtitled



Out In Africa Film Festival
We pay tribute to an Australian filmmaker, Philip Brooks, who died last year. This is the last feature film he produced.

This is a beautifully crafted, sumptuous investigation of the pre-fame life of the Rio Carnival legend, Jo�o Francisco Dos Santos. Set in the seedy Lada district (Brazil's Montmartre) of the 1930s, A�nouz magically weaves the key characters and social factors that drive this charismatic fighting cat with a Josephine Baker obsession.

Flamboyant and volatile, Jo�o lives with, and fiercely protects, his two �wives� (the prostitute and mother, Laurita, and the doe-eyed queen, Taboo) and despite his instincts falls for the handsome petty criminal, Renatinho. Jo�o might live on the edge of squalor and fight each day as it arrives, but his dreams are firmly fixed on becoming the star of his own cabaret act; a dream that he pursues, and his loyal �family� supports, despite bouts in prison, regular brawls, and seemingly insurmountable prejudice.
