“Hotel Laide” was one of the social hotels of the extinguished policies of harm reduction for crack users from the biggest crackland of Latin America, located in São Paulo. The documentary follows up the arrival at the hotel of Angelica, a young woman who had lived on the street from 7 to 23 years old, when she met Laide, Brenda and Maria Paula. More than a survival story, the film bears witness to the importance of harm reduction policies.

In 2015, after years of campaigning and multiple attempts, Robin Hood Gardens estate in East London was rejected listing. The same year, I made a documentary about the estate to capture it on film before it was gone forever. In 2017, demolition began. I returned to film the slow destruction.
Niemeyer 4 Ever
Lebanon, Nicolas Khoury, 2018, 30`
“Niemeyer 4 Ever” draws the poignant picture of the Tripoli Rachid Karame International Fair; the “ghost town” composed of a hundred and ten thousand square meters of structures; erected on a one million square meters of terrain; engulfed by bitter souvenirs and dead silence. It never reached the objective for which it was conceived by Oscar Niemeyer, the builder of Brasilia, worldwide celebrated and icon of modern architecture.

COMPETITIVE EXHIBITION - URBAN CABIN
SPECIAL EXHIBITION - SCS CORREDOR CENTRAL
Brazil, Gabriela Gaia Meirelles, Tainá Medina, 2019, 15'
“Afeto” is an experimental short film about architecture, memory and female occupation of the urban space. The film stitches archival images, observational records and performances, debating the impartiality of urban planning and women's social role in building cities. Its narrative mixes sci-fi, horror and documentary language to speak of a ghost town where denouncing memory is the first step in recreating it.
