In the unconventional, award-winning Three Tidy Tigers Tied a Tie Tighter, three queer youths embark on a surreal, dystopian adventure.

Isabella, Pedro and Jonata explore the streets of São Paulo in the wake of an unusual memory-affecting virus, sharing stories and meeting vibrant characters along the way. They reflect on their lives and past lovers, finding joy amongst the chaos, even as they struggle to survive in a challenging, forever-changed world. Director Gustavo Vinagre’s bold and whimsical debut won the Teddy Award at Berlinale 2022 and marks him as a fascinating, provocative filmmaker to watch.
