Film & Discussion
Estamira (2004) will be shown in conjunction with Gabriele M. Schwab’s symposium presentation, “Emergent Subjectivities: Globalism, Ecology and Psychic Life in Marcos Prado's Estamira.

Marcos Prado about his two-hour documentary film: “I met Estamira while developing a photo documentary essay at a garbage dump in Rio de Janeiro, where she was working and living. I approached her asking if I could take her portrait. She consented and told me she had lots of ‘things’ to say to me: ‘my mission is to reveal and reclaim the truth’, ‘you are common, I am not’.”
