The short film Nina Maranta investigates what co-creative documentary video collage can bring to the post-truth, speculative, immersive documentary discussions. Portraying Brazilian artist and performer Nina Monteiro in a co-creative process, the work weaves Jungian idea of personas and tropical plant stories, revealing nuanced and non-hegemonic Brazilian immigrant imaginaries.

Image credits: Collage includes analogue archival photography of Nina Monteiro by Eduardo Azevedo.
