Painted Baby (Self-Service)

Painted Baby (Self-Service) is an experimental video/spoken-word piece concerned with the relationship between memory, voice, physicality and the ontology of the “outside” and the “underground” as spaces of exceedance of languages, chance, eeriness and resistance. A young girl and a woman are interconnected in different temporalities. The film examines a constellation of rites of passages and confronts forms of physicality, dance, fear, innocence, sexuality and child exploitation. Painted Baby (Self-Service) was shot in guerrilla style and looks into discourses of improvisation (past, present and futurities) as it celebrates Brazilian Cinema Marginal and No Wave filmmaking as influences and ghostly presences in the works of Tetine.

Conceived, produced and directed by Tetine (Bruno Verner & Eliete Mejorado). Music by Tetine: Bruno Verner, on piano and effects / Eliete Mejorado, vox, effects / Dancer: Yoko Afi
