Luiz Roque: O Novo Monumento


‘O Novo Monumento’, a short video that one would like to go on longer, combines hope and dreams with the images of a failing utopia. In an era where skin color and sexual orientation still dictates power and personal achievements Roque’s video video brings us a beautiful vision, captivated in poetic images and a score of upbeat and ever so slighty melancholic sounds
