SYNOPSIS (ENGLISH): Two girls on a van in this adventure musical road movie. A soft tale of anger, joy, a beach, some sugarcane and a little bit of music. Shot in a 8 days trip through the neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro State, the film follows two sisters, Flora and “She”, in their never-ending journey in an apocalyptical but beautiful landscape, finding ways to survive making money with a show where “She” pretends to be transformed in a real monkey woman. Small towns, sugarcane landscape and industrial areas are mixed in their minds with the music, lights and romantic culture of the suburbs – as they transform their pain, doubt and desire, in a strange form of communication based on singing secret memories and wondering feelings. In this desertical and romantic world where they find themselves, the two girls keep trying to meet someone who could be part of their fantastic show, and some secret place where they could try to re-start the life on Earth with some violence, some fire and some silent sweetness.

DIRECTORS` NOTE: Felipe Bragança & Marina Meliande THE SCAPE OF THE MONKEY WOMAN is a road musical melodrama about youth. Its also about our crew and our colletive passion for some kind of enthusiasm, joy and anger in a way cinema can be still a territory of magic. We needed to do it like this: as an small adventure, as a kind of risk and lovefull trip about our imaginary in a country and around a city (Rio de Janeiro) full of explosion and tension. This film is the first part of our trilogy film-scape of the usual methods of making films in Brazil, trying to find some kind of firefull beauty in the small crews, gestures and life of our friends, memories and music. This film is part of our research about what is it to be young in a time and planet full of melancholic ideals and prophetic ends of world. We want this film and our cinema to be itself a object of possible beauty that can have enthusiastic, reflexive and joyfull effects in the eyes that see it. We really have no more patience to the ideal of the contemporary cinema as a sad cronist of our times to fight against the stupid entertainment. We think art cinema can do more: can still create alternative and combative time and space as a magic trick… Or maybe die trying to do it.
