Minha Fortaleza est le titre du rap que le personnage Macário, 24 ans, a composé – en remerciement – pour sa mère, dont il a tatoué le portrait sur la poitrine. Avec les paroles emblématiques de la chanson imprégnant le récit, le documentaire a l’intention de faire le tour des studios de tatouage de l’East Side de São Paulo, à la recherche de jeunes qui ont, comme le personnage guide Macário, tatoué sur leur corps l’image de leur mère – ou de la Vierge Marie. L’idée est de dresser un panorama de cette jeunesse orpheline de père et de sa relation avec sa mère – identifiée comme sainte et non par hasard avec la patronne du Brésil – et la nécessité de marquer dans la chair cet engagement d’intégrité et de droiture au milieu d’un contexte où l’attrait du crime est omniprésent.

Minha Fortaleza (My Fortress) DOCUMENTARIES
project under development
Minha Fortaleza (My Fortress) is the title of the rap song the main character Macário, 24, composed to thanks his mother, whose portrait he tattooed in his chest. With the lyrics of this powerful song permeating the narrative, this documentary intends to take a journey through the tattoo studios of São Paulo’s impoverished East Zone, seeking young people who, like the character Macário, have tattooed the image of their mother – or of the Virgin Mary – in their body. The idea is to show this fatherless young generation and their relationship with their mothers – seen as a saint and not accidentally identified with this religious figure who is the patron saint of Brazil – and the need to mark in one’s skin this commitment of integrity and righteousness amidst an environment where the appeal of the life as a criminal is ever present.

My Fortress
In homes without a father, a solitary mother acquires the aura of a holy warrior.

Three families affected by the absence of a father in a slum of São Paulo, Brazil, where the solitary mother acquires, through their son’s eyes, the aura of a holy warrior. But these women seem to be trapped on pedestals they have no interest in and that resemble the painful Holy Mary figure that their sons’ tattoo on their bodies.

Português

Minha Fortaleza é o título do rap que o personagem Macário, 24, compôs – em agradecimento – para sua mãe, cujo retrato ele tatuou no peito. Com a letra emblemática da música permeando a narrativa, o documentário pretende fazer um passeio pelos ateliês de tatuagem da Zona Leste de São Paulo, buscando jovens que tenham, como o personagem-guia Macário, tatuado em seu corpo a imagem da mãe – ou da Virgem Maria. A idéia é traçar um panorama desta juventude sem pai e de sua relação com a mãe – identificada como santa e não por acaso com a Santa Padroeira do Brasil – e da necessidade de se marcar na carne este compromisso de integridade e retidão em meio a um contexto onde o apelo do crime é onipresente.
