Neon Bull

Gabriel Mascaro

Wild, sensual and utterly transporting, Brazilian writer-director Gabriel Mascaro’s second fiction feature unfolds within the world of the vaquejada, a traditional exhibition sport in which cowboys try to pull bulls to the ground by their tails. Neon Bull explores the vaquejada through the eyes of Iremar (Juliano Cazarre), a handsome cowboy who works the events. While he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty, Iremar’s real dream is to design exotic outfits for dancers.

“Astonishing.” -New York Times Critics’ Pick

“Stately, earthy, graphic, riveting.” -The Village Voice

“Auspicious, original, and absorbing.” -The Playlist

“With scalpel-like precision, Gabriel Mascaro’s second narrative feature frankly yet effortlessly explores sexuality, environmental issues, and suffering both human and animal.” Violet Lucca, Film Comment

“Brazil’s social and economic inequities are the underlying concerns of every Mascaro project—he also has a studio practice that’s yielded several installations—but, more than in any previous work, Neon Bull weds those concerns, without compromise, to an extraordinarily crafted, often painterly beauty.” José Teodoro

“…Subverting gender expectations in fresh and challenging ways, it was another of Venice’s highlights.” Carmen Gray, Another Mag

“Mascaro’s striking imagery will stick with you long after the movie ends… Mascaro’s most masterful upending has nothing to do at all with Brazilian stereotypes but is more universal. An immersion in the sights, sounds, and textures of nature, Boi Neon shows us how close we humans are to beasts, not so we shun it, tame it, or disguise it, but so we finally see that it is good.” Shari Kizirian, Fandor

“a veritable life-force—you can practically smell the characters’ sweat and feel the humidity they swelter in… Like a young Wim Wenders, Mascaro allows the flow of travel to shape the narrative rather than force his itinerant characters into any familiar pattern. As such, NEON BULL feels more like a hang-out session than a story, and it grows more ingratiating the longer you spend with its subjects.” Ben Sachs, Cine-File
