DEUS NOS ACUDI, a film project that seeks to question and explore consumer societies and the place of the body today, revealed through its cultural universe. Also, how this has been perpetuated and applied throughout history, in maintaining dominance by power; where secularized religiosity, beliefs, deities, rituals and myths are interconnected in daily life and how they fragment and can be used as one of the strategies for social control, directly affecting bodies and society as a whole, through rules and standards. “Is the contemporary body free or controlled? Original or imitated? Is the experience of the body influenced by the cultural pattern to which it is inserted?”
Tradition, whether through orality, symbols, manuscripts, sacred objects and even body movements, evokes the ancestry of an entire society. In the contemporary world, for the globalized individual, the difference. Moments when everything is black, and we do not see with our eyes, we feel life in a deep dream of anguish and pain, but when we wake up we find ourselves in chaos and we are just a body in the world, bringing in all this experience, even if unconscious. The strong image and physicality of the body in motion, generate different moments of doubt, choice and opinions.
