Behind a green screen, a foreigner finds his way in an enchanting yet turbulent Brazil. Where the streets are a stage for politics, art and affection, a gringo can only watch. The result is a mixtape-portrait on modern day Brazil seen through the eyes of the visitor. 'Green Screen Gringo' won GSFF17's Bill Douglas Award for International Short Film. Listen to director Douwe Dijkstra in conversation with film critic Tara Judah:
The podcast is produced by Halina Rifai from Glasgow Podcart and A Sonic Hug, with music by Lewis den Hertog.
