As a follow-up to Sylvia Kristel – Paris, Manon de Boer has once more chosen to sketch the portrait of a female destiny – that of the Brazilian psychoanalyst, Suely Rolnik. A major figure in her homeland, imprisoned during the discreet but virulent dictatorship, then exiled in Paris during the 70s, which stoked her passion for ideas, inspired a profusion of theories and led to unshakeable friendships with the philosophers Deleuze and Guattari, Suely Rolnik embodies an existence dedicated to resisting deadly forces. It is a country, a city (Sao Paulo) and above all an epoch that are offered up here to our senses. Between the tenuous, unraveled threads of an intellectual endeavor concerned with otherness, the voice, the relationship between the body and power, and the micro-politics of desire, a life emerges in its unadulterated militancy. Beyond heroism and beyond glib simplifications – beyond any existing model in fact – Manon de Boer sought to make her film in the manner of a sensitive “surface”.
