This conversation with directors Patricia Ferreira Pará Yxapy, André Novais Oliveira, Filipe Matzembacher, Marcio Rolon, and Julia Katharine took place over email exchanges and recorded phone conversations in the weeks between late June and early late August of 2020. In lieu of a real conversation, in person or online, all of the interviewees were sent the same set of questions, upon which they were invited to reflect. The directors were chosen because of the independent production models they work with, and because their voices, here placed side by side, portrays the sense of heterogeneity and pluriversality that today makes up Brazilian cinema.
