Laura Belém

Noite de São João magically transposes a rural Brazilian festival into the urban landscape of Toronto. In Brazil, for the Feast of Saint John, villages are decorated with multi-coloured paper flags in a night celebration of music, dancing and food. In Toronto, Belém fills the sky with starstudded blue flags swaying to a soundscape of field recordings from the Brazilian festival, reinventing our relation to our surroundings in a poetic white night.
