Immersive documentary INFERNO delves into the fantastical world of artist Gui Taccetti, whose deeply personal work channels the anxiety of growing up gay in staunchly Catholic Brazil.

Directors Statement

Gui Taccetti’s Inferno is a deeply personal story. It explores the anxiety he experienced growing up gay in Brazil, a place with a staunch dogma of Catholicism and heteronormativity. His Inferno is not a dark corner of the underworld in which sinners are punished. Instead, it’s a figurative realm for the anxiety felt by him and by others condemned under a doctrine pushed by the status quo. The film documents Gui’s process over six months in the lead up his biggest and most ambitious exhibition to date.
