Máquina do Desejo is a documentary built upon the unique audio-visual archive of the Teatro Oficina which, for over 60 years, has surpassed its stage and penetrated Brazilian history. We plunge into the creative guts of the various personalities of this untamed theatre troupe, so as its venue, an epicenter of resistance and re-existence that turned freedom of expression into an irreversible conquest.
