    March 3, 2020 - April 25, 2020

    Jogos dirigidos / Directed games, a 57-minute video by Jonathas de Andrade, is set in the arid backlands of Várzea Queimada, an off-the-grid town in Brazil's Nordeste. Among the town's nine hundred inhabitants is an unusually large population of deaf individuals. De Andrade's work depicts a group from this community as they use a nuanced, self-taught system of gestural signs to enact staged testimonials and play outdoor games.
