Gustavo Vinagre’s new film humorously follows three young queer people in São Paolo as they navigate late-stage capitalism and an odd pandemic that erases your short-term memory. Winner of the Teddy Award at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival, Tres Tigres Tristes follows the trio as they roam through a dystopian yet still vibrant São Paulo, discussing their experiences with HIV, reminiscing on old flames, and sharing survival tips as a means of resistance. Despite the darkness that surrounds them, this stunning film demonstrates the possibilities of finding joy in the margins.
