“Captain Gervasio’s Family” a film by Tamar Guimarães & Kasper Akhøj

(Baltimore, USA) The many spirit mediums of Palmelo, a rural city in Central Brazil, are featured in “Captain Gervasio’s Family” (2013-2014), short made by the 6-times PIPA Prize nominee Tamar Guimarães and Kasper Akhøj and currently on view at the Baltimore Museum of Art. The film, which premiered at the 55th Venice Biennale’s main exhibition in 2013 and was featured at the 31st São Paulo Biennale in 2014, is a reflexive look at the mediums who communicate with the dead and engage in psychic healing practices at a spiritual centre known as Luz da Verdade (The Light of Truth).
