Uniquely funny and refreshingly candid, Renovation introduces us to complicated, neurotic, bear-ish, and lovable Francisco (writer-director Fábio Leal). Helping his friend Flávia (Mariah Teixeira) paint her apartment, he can’t seem to stop opening up about his body issues, his rotating cast of handsome bedmates, and his love of sweets and Julia Roberts. Renovation won a trio of awards at Brazil’s largest queer film festival, MixBrasil, for Best Short Film, Best Director, and Best Screenplay.

This film contains sexually explicit material.
