Mensagem do Realizador Director Statement
When I was still just a girl, I was always curious to explore and understand the recurring pleasures of my body. But like almost every girl, for a long time, I didn’t find anyone who could serve as a mirror for me, teaching me about these self-discoveries and feelings of puberty. It was from this desire to register the de-romanticization of virginity and sex as a common necessity for women, with no dissociation between the body and the social, that I decided to write Maria’s story and immerse in the female sexual discoveries. My motivation was to speak in some way about my own desires and to give life to this character who, for me, is so strong as a model, even if so banal and present in our society. Maria’s introspective state stems from how repressed she feels growing up in a society where acceptance and exploration of the body, pleasures, sex, and self-satisfaction through masturbation are taken from women on an institutional level. Men are instructed from an early age to touch each other, a desire that precedes their first contact with women, as a way of relieving the lust of the opposite sex. “Lençol Branco” shows a girl’s first contact with her sex: it is a film about female sexual desires at an age where the search for knowledge of her own body and sexual pleasures and desires is present. – It’s about feeling, touching, having, seeing. It is a feminine encounter with your pleasures and your body.
