Cao Guimarães figures among the Brazilian authors who deal systematically with movies in the art field. Dora uses various techniques – painting, photography, video – but defines herself as a producer of images. And Andrade’s “Uprising” video is an attempt to turn visible the issue of rural animals used as transportation in Recife, the artist’s hometown.
