Glitter Shower.
For someone growing up in Brazil in the late 80s, early 90s, the Dzi Croquettes weren't much more than a story told by a few of the previous generation - "Brazil's theater group that revolutionized queer performance art in the context of the political, social and cultural climate of Brazil in the 1970s." The images available at the time were only enough to make one curious.

Now, imagine what a pleasant surprise it was, when I went to the Moma to see Dzi Croquettes, the documentary, and was provided with all those images I longed to see ever since I was a teenager.

This documentary completely changed my perception of theatre in the 70s, in Brazil. Not only I got to see so many recovered images people didn't know existed, I got to see the acting, singing, and dancing heroes of my generation talk about their heroes - The Dzi Croquettes - with much love and adoration. Even Liza Minnelli!

I had 110 minutes to satisfy my curiosity with this documentary that tells a story with as much creativity as the Dzi, in their prime, used to perform. I learned, I laughed, I cried, and left the theater wanting to fly.

It was a glitter shower!
