Why am I the target of this camera?

A NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY

I have a certain resistance

to seeing myself

as an object

of an investigation or attention.

And this is something

that bothers me during interviews.

I end up answering, of course,

because...

because answering also interests me.

It is a heavy burden to me,

as, in a way,

I often hide things from myself.

E-MAILS FROM LAERTE

See you here tomorrow

at 4:
30pm, then? Kisses!

Actually, I would like to postpone it.

I am not at all comfortable

with recording here.

I think I need more time.

E-MAIL FROM ELIANE

Hi, Laerte.

I am not sure

time will make things easier.

It has been over a year

since the first time you refused.

Sometimes, time only makes things

taboo and makes monsters bigger.

EMAIL FROM LAERTE

Perhaps I don't mean more time,

but another time.

I have been particularly tense.

I have had a few people over

for quick interviews,

and I was anxious for them to go away

as soon as possible.

Our meeting

will not be a quick interview.

I think I would rather postpone it,

knowing what it means.

EMAIL FROM ELIANE

I think it is important

for us to keep our meeting,

and restart this documentary

from whenever possible.

And it is important

for it not become a burden to us.

Each meeting doesn't

need to be a big event.

Sometimes they are just un-events,

routines, small details...

and also sometimes uncomfortable moments.

Can you suggest a place

where you would feel good?

EMAIL FROM LAERTE

I can't think of anywhere.

I think you're right. It is like

therapy or psychoanalysis.

Let's do it at mine

and see how it goes. Bye.

Valente, my grandson,

had never been here either.

-I stopped him coming in.

-Oh, really?

Not now.

He is walking, he is all...

He's all biped.

So I wanted him to come.

I was a bit impatient.

My daughter-in-law was too,

and also Rafael.

Everybody liked it.

He found it nice, he was...

He got to the kitchen and said "skull!".

It was the first thing he saw.

"Do you like it?" "I do."

He loves my dad. Loves him!

He slept over there

recently for the first time.

He loved it. It's his grandpa.

We decided this - me, him and my dad.

What would he be?

Grandma or grandpa?

M's father passed away,

so there was no other grandpa

and there were

eight grandmas at the table.

So we asked him if he would be happy

being the grandpa, to fill a gap.

He said, "yes, it's fine."

How was it with your dad, the first time

you showed up dressed as a woman?

He was a bit pissed off.

But my mom...

She changed his mind, I think.

My father is more uptight

about these things.

Homosexuality and gender issues.

He is not open about these things.

He did try,

and I think his effort was great.

And I also think there is something

about being old, a kind of detachment.

My father is a retired professor.

He knows about rocks.

DAD?

IS THIS YOU, DAD?

THESE ARE MY TEETH.

SHOULD I TRY TO GET IN?

YOU SHOULD TRY TO GET OUT.

I remember what he...

When I started studying at FAAP,

there were many queers,

it was very artsy.

This climate was sort of evident

and he didn't hide his discontentment.

-About you being there?

-He would say that he found it odd.

"Look at those poofs over there."

And when I looked,

they were all friends of mine.

The hardest thing for me was my mom.

Up until the publication

of Bravo Magazine,

when the whole thing became public,

I was happy keeping my clandestine life.

I was more conformed than happy.

I knew she wouldn't,

under any circumstances,

reject me or anything like that.

But I knew she had objections to express.
