“People told me he was too radical. Too exaggerated. That he wasn´t open to talking and discussion. What people didn´t know is that he was hungry to live. He only had this one life and he had the right to be happy. Unfortunately, the hatred he hated so much won.”
After the death of her best friend, a victim of homophobia, a young girl tries to understand what happened. What could she have done? One thought won’t leave her: It could be me; it could be you.
Felipe began his career as a screenwriter and actor in 2005 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In cinema, he has directed three LGBTs comedies: “Gaydar” (2012), “Label” (2013) and “I do” (2014). He acted in, directed and wrote the scripts to these films, which have been screened at more than 80 national and international festivals, and won 12 awards to date.
The LGBT issue has become Felipe’s working universe. Recently, he was one of the writers of a successful soap opera, “Total Dreamer,” shown on the Rede Globo channel.
