Julia ist eine transsexuelle Schauspielerin. Aber ist es so einfach? Rasch nämlich stellt sich hier die Frage, in welcher Sphäre Julia am meisten etwas darstellt – Vor der Kamera? Auf der Bühne? Oder in jener merkwürdigen Welt, die wir Alltag, Realität heißen? Julia hat viel aus dem Kino für sich gezogen: Energien, Konzepte, Stile, plus Fetischobjekte. Als Cinephile weiß sie den Regisseur zu verwenden, um von sich sichtbar zu machen, was zu sehen sein soll. Zu den Geheimnissen des Kinos gehört, dass dabei vieles sich ofenbart, was Julia eigentlich nur sich selbst gestehen würde: durch Blicke, Gesten, die Art des Sprechens ... (Olaf Möller)

 

A long journey into a night of confessions between insomnia and glasses of wine. In LEMBRO MAIS DOS CORVOS, Gustavo Vinagre invites us to meet his collaborator and friend Julia Katharine. In this exercise of confessional cinema where through the device of interview, director and actress structure a narrative that explores the memories, stories, desires and dreams that have led to the present identity of the Japanese-Brazilian trans-actress. In a progression guided by clear questions by Vinagre – always of-camera – Katharine is fully explored and exposed in his confessional tour de force, full of simple and revealing gestures. Without fear of facing the director directly, Julia questions her own story as well as the film itself. With revealing enunciations of shame or sexual statements of the most intimate order, the actress and co- author shows with her anecdotes the way in which a real life character, or even a cinematographic one, is articulated; constructed from the most intimate experiences in the family nucleus up to the cinephilia that arises from observing the work of Alfred Hitchcock or Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
