Maravilhosa” is an intimate portrait of Mavi Veloso, artist, immigrant and among others, a dear friend of filmmaker Thiemi Higashi. The film allows Mavi to share glimpses of her life through dualities, spoken thoughts and beautiful moments, documenting and celebrating this amazing artist.


Obscuro Barroco mixes documentary with fiction in this cinematographic homage to a place of extremes; the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Following the path of iconic transgender figure Luana Muniz (1961-2017), the film explores different quests for the self through transvestism, carnival and political struggle.
