Goliath’s Henrychment O Henrique Cimento de Golias

Imagem de O Henrique Cimento de Golias
Sinopse Original Original Sinopsis

Durante a gravação dum programa inspirado nos anos 80, Henrique Cimento conhece Golias, que está muito nervoso por segurar a longa perche pela primeira vez. Durante a primeira performance, oprimidos pelo silêncio religioso da rodagem, limitam-se a trocar olhares que poderão levar a algo mais. “O Henrique Cimento de Golias” é um musical colorido sobre uma atração fugaz improvável, um episódio excessivo de desejo mútuo. Sejam henriquecidos!

Sinopse Internacional Sinopsis

During a taping of an 80s-themed TV show, Henrychment meets Goliath, who is quite nervous holding the long boom mic for the first time. In the initial performance, oppressed by the religious silence on set, they are limited to exchanging provocative looks that could lead up to something else. “Goliath’s Henrychment” is a colourfol musical about an improbable fling, an excessive episode of mutual desire. Allow yourselves to be henryched!

Mensagem do Realizador Director Statement
This film came from my desire of making a musical short while still in college, a genre that is avoided in auteur cinema. Before you watch my film, I alert you to the fact that it isn’t conventional: I consider it my first love letter to excess in queer cinema, in the veins of the highly influential “Querelle”. Thus, the zoom-ins (digital and analogical), flares, the tendency towards kitch as a style, the poor image quality, the cheesy transitions, etc. are reminiscent of an aesthetics pulled form 80s music vídeos. This nostalgia for a time I haven’t even lived comes from my desire of exploring the sexual charge in that iconography, associating it with the fetichism for iconic jobs: the dancer from the morning show and the pizza boy (once my summer job). Pairing this with dialogues and performances inspired by vintage gay pornography, my intention was to create a world admittedly simplified whose nature would allow two boys to act on their sexual attraction as being just that, not a life-long romance. Likewise, with a visual aesthetic lightly inspired by John Water’s filmography and with the choice of gay anthems, I wanted to create a clear homage to queer pop culture. “Goliath’s Henrychment” is a post-modern, post-sexual liberalization musical and a way to heighten the camp factor that our culture should never stray away from. Allow yourselves to be Henryched!
